Here's an excerpt introduction of the website:
"The preservation of traditional knowledge and the oral tradition is important both to Inuit identity and morality in the political context of the development of Nunavut. It is important to Inuit that the traditional knowledge passed on by the elders is not lost and that it is incorporated into new structures to be set up by the Nunavut government.

The materials in the Interviewing Inuit Elders series were created from an Inuit perspective that is sensitive to Inuit culture and values."
