Inside the family home a different type of change can be observed. There are radios to receive community FM broadcasts, telephones, televisions showing programs produced by the Inuit Broadcasting Corporation and distributed over the Television Northern Canada (TVNC) network, VCRs, video games, computers and fax machines.

These are all being linked into the information super highway with the aid of communication satellites. Nevertheless, the elders still tell their stories, and children combine a commitment to formal education with a desire to learn as much as possible about the special qualities, values and traditions that give them a unique identity as Inuit.
