Since 1999, we have partnered with Dr. Max Friesen at the University of Toronto to pursue combined archaeological and traditional knowledge research. This work allowed us to learn more about very ancient history in the Kitikmeot, and to provide opportunities for Inuinnait youth to engage with heritage on the land. Along the way, we made some amazing discoveries about the history of both Inuit and the mysterious people who lived in Nunavut before them, the Tuniit.
Here are our top 10! They are arranged along a 5,000 year timeline from most recent at the top, to most ancient at the bottom. Click through each bubble to learn more.
