Name of creator
The Tuktu and Nogak (caribou and calves) project was conducted in Kitikmeot region, Nunavut, to document the traditional Inuit knowledge (Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit) of the caribou of Bathurst Inlet, Nunavut. The project was conducted with elders from various communities in Kitikmeot.
The sound recordings had been held on deposit with Northwest Territories Archives, Yellowknife, until the May Hakongak Cultural Centre was built in Cambridge Bay.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of sound recordings of oral history interviews conducted as part of the Tuktu and Nogak (caribou and calves) project. The interviews document traditional Inuit knowledge of caribou behaviour, habitat, and migration, traditional hunting methods and techniques, and traditional uses of caribou. The interviews were conducted with Inuit elders from from various communities in Kitikmeot region, including Cambridge Bay (Iqaluktuuttiaq), Kugluktuk (Qurluqtuq, Coppermine), Qingauk (Bathurst Inlet), and Umingmaqtuuq (Bay Chimo). Fonds includes copies of one book and two reports based on the research.
