Name of creator
The Kiluhiqtuq project was undertaken to investigate oral history, traditional Inuit knowledge, and archaeology of Kiluhiqtuq (Beechey Lake), Nunavut, in an area south of Bathurst Inlet and north of the Northwest Territories border. The project also provided an Inuinnaqtun language-immersion experience for young people from Cambridge Bay (Ikaluktuuttiaq), Nunavut. The team of elders, archaeologists, and field assistants found a number of hunting blinds, caches, and tent rings. The project was organised by Kitikmeot Heritage Society.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of audio-visual recordings of oral history interviews conducted with Inuit elders regarding social history, archeology, and traditional Inuit knowledge of Kiluhiqtuq (Beechey Lake), Nunavut. Fonds includes transcripts of the interviews, photographs taken during the project, a map of the region used during planning the research, and two versions of the final report "Kiluhiqturmiut nunaa: Inuinnaqtun immersion and oral history project".
