This site was created to provide a central location online to learn about Canadian Inuit culture. This site is designed to serve as a resource for Canadian school age children and their teachers. It's purpose is to offer new a different ways of learning about Inuit culture and what it means to be Inuit.  

We are very proud to share with you insights into what it means to be Inuit in Canada today.  We will share some history about Inuit culture as well. For those who do not know who the Inuit people are this is the ideal place to learn. Inuit were once referred to as Eskimo but the preferred term for some time is Inuit.  Many Inuit found the term Eskimo inaccurate and offensive, and refer to themselves as Inuit.
