Nilliajut Project Explores Inuit Perspectives on Security, Patriotism and Sovereignty | Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami - Canada's National Inuit Organization

National Inuit Leader Terry Audla, President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), released a compendium of Inuit ideas and attitudes towards Arctic security and sovereignty today during the Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program’s third annual conference, “Arctic Peoples and Security.”

Nilliajut (to speak up, speak out) is the title of a film and companion text produced by Inuit Qaujisarvingat: The Inuit Knowledge Centre (IQ) in collaboration with the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation and the Canada Center for Global Security Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.

The project explores the multifaceted views of security, patriotism and sovereignty in the Arctic through the eyes of established and emerging Inuit leaders and thinkers, including Pujjuut Kusugak of Rankin Inlet, Myrna Pokiak of Tuktoyaktuk, and Rosemarie Kuptana of Sachs Harbour, who participated in a panel discussion during the conference.

“Inuit have played our part in asserting the sovereign rights of Canada in the Arctic,” said Audla, who appears in the film and contributed a manuscript to the collection of papers. “These rights are founded on the bedrock of Inuit use and occupation of Arctic lands and waters.”

Video of Inuk woman plucking bird on Montreal metro train goes viral

Video of Inuk woman plucking bird on Montreal metro train goes viral | Inuit Nunangat Stories | Scoop.it

"...

The bird-plucker identified herself on social media as Christina David, a young woman from Kangiqsujuaq who is now living in Montreal.

In a Facebook post July 25, David said she was surprised to see the incident had made the local news.

“It’s not like we get to eat our country food every day,” she wrote. “I was so happy that I didn’t care where I was at the moment but all I have to say it that I ain’t crazy.”

It’s not clear what kind of bird David had with her that day, although she added that she was not eating the animal raw, as had been reported.

Montreal police have said the woman could face a charge of disturbing the peace, because the incident upset passengers around her...."

“You always hear about global warming and everything that it’s doing but you never get a face on what it’s really affecting,” said Patterson, adding Inuit elders spoke of the warmth changing the landscape, moving the tree line farther up and destroying habitat for Arctic animals. They pointed out other animals and birds that are not native to the area, but are surviving in what once was a hostile climate.
