9781552380567: Nunavik: Inuit-Controlled Education in Arctic Quebec (Northern Lights)

As a history of the development of self-government in education, Nunavik provides Native perspectives on formal education in Nunavik while offering readers a unique view into contemporary Inuit society. This book documents the development of education from the arrival of the first traders and missionaries in the mid-nineteenth century through the creation of the Kativik School Board and the evaluation of its operations by the Nunavik Education Task Force in the 1990s. Nunavik takes a detailed look at the complex debate of the Inuit of Northern Quebec about the purposes, achievements, and failures of the public schools in their communities, the first Inuit-controlled school district in Canada. Participants in these debates included elders who were educated traditionally, their children with a few years of education in mission and government schools, their grandchildren who attended southern high schools or residential schools, and current students and recent graduates of the Kativik schools. Qallunaat (non-Inuit) were also participants, as residents of Nunavik communities, parents of Inuit children, teachers, administrators, and expert consultants. Illustrated with rich historical photographs, in colour and black and white, and maps from the collections of the Avataq Cultural Institute and the Makivik Corporation, Nunavik provides a uniquely Native perspective on school change in indigenous communities.

About the Author:

Since 1970, Ann Vick-Westgate has worked with Native peoples to develop and initiate educational programs in public schools that reflect their culture, traditions, and perspectives. She is interested in parental involvement and in self-government in education and in engaging students in collecting and publishing information about their communities and cultures.

Review:

“This is an important story, well told. The people of Nunavik were among the first Indigenous peoples in North America to gain control of their educational system. They were also among the last to have been affected by Western schooling, and consequently had living memories of Inuit ways of educating the young. Their approach to developing a new system began by reexaming basic assumptions about the purposes of education and the role it can play in raising children-and in strengthening a community's capacity for self-determination in all of its affairs. I hope in the next decade we will have many more stories to read such as this one from both Native and non-Native rural communities.” -- Pat Hammer, director, ERIC Clearinghouse on Rural Education and Small Schools

"Among the cultures of the world that I know, the one that is most concerned with their children is the Inuit. So, I can understand first attention of Nunavik self-government is devoted to the education of their children." -- Karla Jessen Williamson, executive director, Arctic Institute of North America

Book Description University of Calgary Press, Canada, 2002. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the pages of this book, you will read of the efforts of many to fearlessly audit the state of education in Nunavik. To diligently seek improvement of an already good system. To fix what is not necessarily broken so that those who come after us will have it even better than we did. The various tensions and differences of opinion are, to me, not contentious at all. The status quo, however good or excellent, is no place to stay. I think all recognize this. - Zebedee Nungak, from the Foreword As a history of the development of self-government in education, Nunavik : Inuit-Controlled Education in Arctic Quebec provides Native perspectives on formal education in Nunavik while offering readers a unique view into contemporary Inuit society.
