Bonesteel, Sarah and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada(June 2006) “Canada’s Relationship with Inuit: A History of Policy and Program Development.”

The history of Inuit relations with the Government of Canada has been a story of negotiation, accommodation and resistance. The relationship has developed around a long conversation of rights recognition and struggle for voice within the Canadian political system. Inuit have made tremendous progress in this, and speak from a position of authority and strength on many issues of concern to them. The conversation and negotiation continues, however, as the story is played out around such issues as control over land and resources, the environment, social programs and the extent and pace of change in the face of maintenance of language, culture and traditional lifestyle.
