On October 7th to 10th 2016, will be held the 20th Biennial Inuit Studies Conference at Memorial University in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. Inuit traditions are a repository of Inuit culture and a primary expression of Inuit identity. The theme for the 2016 Inuit Studies Conference invites Elders, knowledge-bearers, researchers, artists, policy-makers, students and others to engage in conversations about the many ways in which traditions shape understanding, while registering social and cultural change.
