Introduction

As Canadian Inuit, we are the most recent generation of this 5,000 year cultural heritage that has sustained itself within a vast Arctic territory stretching from the eastern coast of present day Russia, across Alaska, and Canada to the east coast of Greenland.

This Learning Collection is based on the Virtual Museum of Canada exhibit, Our World – Our Way of Life. The Inuit and Haida people have ancient and rich cultures, history and heritage which are shared on the Our World - Our Way of Life website. Exhibits from the Haida Nation of Haida Gwaii and the Inuit of Nunavut include carvings, war canoes, oral histories and ancient stories. Learn about the original occupants of the Queen Charlotte Islands and Canada’s Arctic regions by visiting the distinct Haida, Innu and Inuit cultures featured on the ’Our World - Our Way of Life’ website.
