Research On Inuit Language And Tradition

A research project will be taking place in all the Nunatsiavut communities for a period of two weeks.

Tom Gordon, Professor of Music at MUN in St. John’s, and Mark Turner, a Post Doctoral Fellow at MUN, will be doing research on Inuit Language and Tradition.

Gordon and Turner say there will be other people involved in the study.

They include Nunatsiavut Archeologist Jamie Brake, and Alana Johns, a Professor of Linguistics at the University of Toronto.

Gordon and Turner say they would like to see as many people as possible come to the open public meetings when they are in the communities.

The goal of the project is to hear stories from Inuit of their settlements.

They are hoping to hear from Inuit who speak the language.

The group or team are expected to be in Rigolet to hold their meeting at Strathcona House at 7pm tomorrow night.

Gordon and the team will be in Makkovik on Thursday, October 2.

The meeting will take place at the Community center at 7pm.

We will air the interview we had with Gordon and Turner on Wednesday.
