IGLUMINIMNUT AILIRAMA: RETURNING HOME
In Inuinnaqtun, the word iglu directly translates as 'home.' The Igluminimnut ailirama project was designed by PI/KHS in 2012 for residents of Cambridge Bay to familiarize themselves with igluit as both physical buildings and a former way of life for Inuinnait.
INUINNAIT SHELTERS FOR A THAWING ARCTIC
This 2016 project was conducted in collaboration with Dr. Nancy Mackin, and produced drawings, models, and full-size reconstructions of shelters that were traditionally built by Inuinnait during various seasons.
Over the course of their lives, Inuinnait Elders have experienced massive transitions from traditional land-based living to modern settlement. In this 2019 video training program conducted by Reel Youth, we partnered Inuinnait youth with local Elders to explore their memories of daily life in the past and how migration to urban houses and communities has changed our values, our priorities, and the ways that we engage with each other and our culture.
