Storytelling traditions around the world are passed from generation to generation, linking people to their cultures and ancestors. Traditional stories are an important aspect of Inuit culture. Currently in the Arctic, however, many of these stories are not being passed on and are at risk of being lost.
The Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA) works hard to promote and protect Inuit culture. QIA has developed Inuitmyths.com, to provide a resource for Nunavummiut and people from around the world who want to learn more about the Inuit storytelling tradition.
Inuitmyths.com is QIA's ongoing initiative to collect traditional stories and make them available to the public. If you have stories you would like to share or if you know someone who does, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. By working together, we will be able to celebrate and strengthen our storytelling tradition as an integral part of Inuit culture.
Collecting these stories is a shared effort. QIA wishes to thank our collaborative partners who have assisted us.
