Qinuisaarniq (“resiliency”) is a program created to educate Nunavummiut about the history and impacts of residential schools, policies of assimilation, and other colonial acts that have affected the Canadian Arctic.
Each resource has been carefully written and reviewed to include level-appropriate opportunities for students to learn about colonial acts and policies that have affected Inuit. These acts and policies created long-lasting impacts on Inuit individuals and communities, which are still being felt today.
The resources in this program include personal interviews, testimony, and writing; non-fiction informational resources; and information about traditional Inuit practices.
