A book launch celebrating the release of Atiqput: Inuit Oral History and Project Naming, edited by Carol Payne, Beth Greenhorn, Deborah Kigjugalik Webster, and Christina Williamson, will be taking place at Woodside Hall at the Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre (355 Cooper Street, Ottawa, Ontario) between 5:00 - 7:00 PM (EST) on Wednesday, October 19, 2022. This event will also be livestreamed through Zoom.
Narratives by Inuit Elders, including Sally Kate Webster, Piita Irniq, Manitok Thompson, Ann Meekitjuk Hanson, and David Serkoak, form the heart of the book, as they reflect on naming traditions and the intergenerational conversations spurred by the photographic archive. Other contributions present scholarly insights and research projects that extend Project Naming’s methodology, interspersed with pictorial essays by the artist Barry Pottle and the filmmaker asinnajaq.
The editors are marking the launch of their book with an event featuring a performance by students from Nunavut Sivuniksavut, country food, and some brief comments from the editors and participating Elders.
