Lecture at MIT and Harvard

On January 7, at the University of Harvard and MIT, Jean-François Arteau delivered a guest lecture on Nunavik government.

As part of a symposium called: "The Canadian Arctic: Nunavik natural history, wildlife and Inuti society in ancient and modern times", Jean-François Arteau addressed students at Massachesetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University. The topic of his presentation was: "Inuit of Nunavik: Perspective on Self-Government".

The listeners were very interested in the presentation and raised some excellent points for reflection. For example, how to give an autonomous government with the subjection of the Uqarvimarik to the national assembly, the necessary protection and promote the Inuit culture inside a non-ethnic government.

Excerpts from the Powerpoint presentation as wel as images from the conference will soon be available on the site.
