Recorded here, long before the environmental and political effects of the later parts of the twentieth century, are the recollections of the people of Nunavik in their own words. This is the first volume of a four-volume series collecting articles from periodicals published by Makivik Corporation, beginning in 1974 with Taqralik Magazine and continuing through the current Makivik Magazine. This volume presents, in stories and tales, a unique glimpse into the authentic experience of a world in change, yet still in touch with its own traditions.
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 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.
Illustration from Taqralik Magazine, 1977
