From the boundless territory of Nunavut come fragile and carefully kept documents that changed the history of not only northern Canada but the entire country.
A new research project at Menno Simons College (MSC), funded by a grant from the Government of Nunavut's Department of Culture and Heritage, will be translating and analyzing over three dozen letters that were handwritten in Inuktitut syllabics by Nunavut Elders in the 1960s and 1970s.
