About the Site

The Inuit Cultural Online Resource has been designed with the primary goal of teaching Canadian school age children about Inuit culture. We also hope that the content provided within this site can help all Canadians learn more about this rich vibrant and proud culture. We have resources included for teachers such as downloadable colouring sheets, and various other activity sheets. We plan to build on the content we have here and make it richer and deeper as time goes by. We also offer a number of very useful links to explore to further the learning process.
We have created a number of video podcasts to watch and learn from. These podcasts cover everything from making bannock to how to make your own bone and stick game. Students can watch and try their hand at throat singing or learn about the significance of the lighting of the Qulliq (the traditional oil lamp).
This site was created by the Ottawa Inuit Children's Centre with the financial support of the Canadian Heritage Gateway Fund without whom this site would not exist.
We hope you find this site helpful, fun and educational.
