Session: User Content: Projects

Project Naming is a trilingual Web exhibition and searchable photographic database available in English, French and Inuktitut on Library and Archives Canada's Web site. It is a collaborative effort between Nunavut Sivuniksavut, a special college program based in Ottawa, and serving Inuit Youth from Nunavut; the Government of Nunavut's Department of Culture, Language, Elders and Youth; and Library and Archives Canada. The goal of this project is the identification of Inuit portrayed in the photographic collections of Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa. It is an ongoing initiative which enables Nunavut Youth to connect with Elders and to better understand their past. It also helps to bridge the cultural differences and geographical distances between the territory of Nunavut and the more southern parts of Canada.
