Description

“Before schools were introduced to the Inuit, we were taught by our relatives.”

In this picture book, Monica Ittusardjuat shares how she learned knowledge and skills in a time before being taken to residential school. She describes how children learned through playing games, imitating grown-ups, and observing adults around them.

About the Authors

Monica has thirty years of experience in education and language studies. She has taught in elementary and high schools, as well as in the Teacher Education Program at Nunavut Arctic College. She also worked at the National Inuit Organization for the unification of the Inuktut writing system.
