A unique opportunity to hear the authentic voices of a world in change.
Second in the series based on articles originally published in the periodicals of Makivik Corporation beginning in 1974 with Taqralik Magazine and continuing through the current Makivik Magazine.
The Makivik Corporation is the legal representative of Quebec's Inuit people, established in 1978 under the terms of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, the agreement that established the institutions of Nunavik. As such, it is the heir of the Northern Quebec Inuit Association which signed the agreement with the governments of Quebec and Canada. Its principal responsibility is the administration of Inuit lands. It also has a mandate to promote the economic and social development of Inuit society in Nunavik. The Makivik Corporation is empowered to negotiate new agreements with governments on behalf of the Quebec Inuit and to represent them. Makivik promotes the preservation of Inuit culture and language as well as the health, welfare, education and relief of poverty for Inuit in their communities.
Beginning with the spoken word and tracing its evolution through the modernizing culture surrounding it, the people of Nunavik continue making themselves heard as the only true representatives for their needs and aspirations in the face of economic, cultural and environmental changes.
