The Nunavut Inuit Heritage Centre will develop curriculum-based education programs related to a variety of subjects. The first ones are art-based.  

Coming Soon

Learning through Inuit Art

IHT is developing nine new arts-related curriculum-based education programs for Grades 1–9. These programs are being designed to meet Department of Education curriculum requirements and to become official educational resources. . The programs are intended to build awareness of the NIHC as it is being developed, and are based upon the Government of Nunavut Inuit Fine Art Collections currently being managed by the Winnipeg Art Gallery. They are bilingual (Inuktitut and English) and incorporate many IQ Principles. In all, the programs highlight over 130 works of Inuit art from all Nunavut regions and many different media.
