Nunavut youth between the ages of 17-25 from Kugluktuk, Rankin Inlet, and Pangnirtung, as well as students living in Ottawa, speak openly and honestly about their experiences in high school. These strong young Inuit share both the challenges and the opportunities education has provided. Perspectives are shared on the importance of Inuit culture, language loss, peer-pressure, experiences after leaving high school, teachers, post secondary education, as well as their hopes for the future.
Supported by ArcticNet, this new research documentary from the UPEI Nunavut team is produced by the filmmaker Mark Sandiford. Partners in this research are the Coalition of Nunavut District Education Authorities and the Department of Education, Government of Nunavut.
