Current Research

I have organized and conducted forums and interviews with elders and others in every community in all three regions of Nunavut--Kivalliq, Qikiqtani, and Kitikmeot. I prepare and analyze questionaires and package data for researchers. I specialize in Inuit Qaujimajatuqangnit (IQ or TEK) with Inuktitut unilingual informants. I grew up on the Land speaking Inuktitut and am now fluent as well in English and French (and limited Russian). I am able to do translations and to keyboard in all Inuktitut, Innuinaqtun, and Innuttitut fonts including the newer UniCode fonts, on several different computer platforms.
