Description

Hunting is one of the most important land skills in the Arctic, and it continues to be an important source of income and food for many people and communities. The Hunter Education Series facilitates the transmission of knowledge regarding proper hunting techniques, safety, and animal behaviour. It will also help to preserve traditional Inuit hunting knowledge and the value of environmental stewardship.
Hunting Caribou in the Fall is a guide to hunting one of the most important game animals for Inuit. Advice is given for fall—time hunting in the Kivalliq Region during the barren—ground caribou migration, when hides are most suitable for the making of winter clothing. This book includes advice on preparing for the hunt, avoiding detection by the caribou, skinning the animal, preserving the meat, and staying safe on the hunt. It also includes information about tradition Inuit hunting methods, and reflections on ethical and environmentally friendly hunting. Supplementary video resources showing actual hunting footage and interviews with hunters, Elders, and wildlife officers are available online.
This unique resource was developed in collaboration with the Nunavut Department if Environment, Inhabit Education, Taqqut Productions, and the Baker Lake Hunters and Trappers Organization.
