These Inuit women, all superb storytellers, weave together the histories and current realities of their people and communities. Asking important questions and expressing honest emotions, the women vividly share their experiences as educational leaders who teach curriculum that is true to their identities and cultures. Such rich stories of themselves and their families not only depict struggles and sacrifices, but also immeasurable courage and resiliency as they retell Inuit history through a decolonizing lens. This is a book that highlights the power of writing to heal and transform both the writer and the reader. - Cyndy Baskin, School of Social Work, Ryerson University

""Sivumut is a powerful and compelling collection, beautifully written and edited. It is illuminated by the insights and frankness of the authors, a unique generation of educational leaders and scholars. This book is a landmark, an important documentation of the experiences of their generation. . . . I will be using it in courses for many years to come, and I am sure others will as well. It deserves a very wide readership and will interest all of those who would like to learn more about Nunavut and Nunavummiut. This is a triumph for all of the authors!""
-Frances Abele, School of Public Policy and Administration, Carleton University
