About Us

About Us

I

nhabit Media Inc. is the first Inuit-owned, independent publishing company in the Canadian Arctic. We aim to promote and preserve the stories, knowledge, and talent of the Arctic, while also supporting research in Inuit mythology and the traditional Inuit knowledge of Nunavummiut (residents of Nunavut, Canada’s northernmost territory). Our authors, storytellers, and artists bring traditional knowledge to life in a way that is accessible to readers both familiar and unfamiliar with Inuit culture and traditions. Incorporated in 2006, Inhabit Media was born out of a need for Nunavut kids to see their culture accurately represented in the books they read in schools. We have spent the last ten years working with elders and storytellers from across the Canadian Arctic to ensure that the region’s unique Inuit oral history is recorded and not lost to future generations. Many of the stories that we publish have never been written down before, having existed for centuries as tales passed orally from generation to generation. While many of these stories are ancient, we work closely with elders, contemporary Inuit writers, and illustrators the world over to present folktales and traditional stories in a format that will resonate with modern audiences across North America. Our books do not simply provide a glimpse into Inuit culture; they also represent the preservation of oral history and traditional knowledge that may otherwise have been lost, in a format that contemporary readers will find engaging, entertaining, and informative. As the first independent publishing company in Nunavut, we are excited to bring Arctic stories and wisdom to the world!

An excerpt from Those Who Dwell Below The water was glacial, crushing the breath out of Pitu’s lungs and squeezing his stomach tight. His thoughts and worries left his mind, and all that remained was panic rushing through his entire body. As he sank beneath the ice, Pitu felt as though he was being stabbed from all directions. For a moment, he thought it might be the qallupilluit, their long, sharp nails piercing him. Eventually, Pitu opened his eyes, and for a moment they burned. But he could see that he was alone in the darkness. Soon the burning dissipated. He looked around, and above him he could see a jagged cast of light. As he descended, as he watched that light drifting farther and blurring with the salt and ice, a calmness engulfed him. Pitu held his breath, but he also felt the absence of needing to breathe. The current kept pulling him deeper into the ocean. The stabbing pain of the cold had stopped, and now Pitu only felt numb. The light had disappeared completely now. Though he was surrounded by darkness, Pitu was comfortable in it. His eyes began to adjust to the darkness and suddenly there was no darkness at all. The water surrounding him had turned a beautiful shade of blue, and inexplicable floes of ice floated around him. The floes cast bright lights that were unlike sunlight or moonlight. Their soft glow created an exquisite colourful aura. This isn’t how nature works, Pitu thought.

Feathers, Bills, and Feet

Snow Bunting Wing Feathers

Snow Bunting

Feathered Fact: A beak or a bill? The words “beak” and “bill” are both used for birds. Other animals, such as octopuses or turtles, also have beaks, but the word “bill” is most often used for birds. A broad, strong, short bill used for tearing or striking prey, such as those found on owls or hawks, is usually called a “beak.”

Common Eider Down Feather

Feathers What is special about birds? Many other animals have wings, such as butterflies, bats, and bees. Other animals, like turtles, lizards, and frogs, lay eggs. But birds are the only animals on earth that are covered in feathers. Feathers keep birds warm and dry, and they allow them to escape their enemies and fly far away as the seasons change. They also help them find and attract mates. The colours and patterns of a bird’s feathers can be changed with the seasons to keep birds safely hidden. Birds change their feathers by moulting. This means that old, worn feathers are shed away and fresh new ones grow in.

Bills come in many shapes and sizes. The shape of a bird’s bill can tell us a lot about what it eats. Seed-eaters, insect-eaters, and fish-catchers all have uniquely shaped bills. These special shapes help them catch their favourite foods. A long, curved bill is perfect for probing in the mud for tiny animals, while a strong, heavy bill can be handy for breaking seeds. Can you guess what each of these birds might eat by the shape of its bill?

14-08-13 3:39 PM

Feathered Fact: As they migrate, phalaropes have been known to gather in flocks around grey whales and bowhead whales, feeding on the crustaceans that the whales stir up from the mud as they are feeding.

Length: 18–20 cm Wingspan: 40–45 cm

The female red phalarope is slightly bigger than the male. Her dark cap, white cheeks, and bright, rusty chest and belly make her much more colourful than the male. Phalaropes have long necks, short, grey legs, lobed toes, and yellow bills tipped with black. Where to Look: Red phalaropes nest in wet tundra along Arctic shores. They like to nest close to Arctic terns, because terns chase away the predators that come looking for eggs! What They Eat: Phalaropes eat insects and their larvae, snails, and crustaceans, picking up food as they wade along the shore. They also spin on the surface of the water in fast, tight circles, making whirlpools that pull food up to the surface where their bills are waiting! Listen For: The phalarope’s call can be a high “Pseet!,” a long “Sw-eet!,” or a whistling “Wit!” Nest: Phalaropes make a small hollow lined with moss, grass, or lichen that is often hidden in the grass close to water. Egg: A phalarope lays 4 olive-coloured eggs freckled with brown. After laying her eggs, the female phalarope leaves the male behind to care for the eggs and chicks all on his own. Chick: The downy, cinnamon-coloured chicks hatch after 18 to 24 days and can leave the nest on their first day out of the egg to hunt for food! During the Winter: Phalaropes change into grey-and-white feathers for the winter and fly south to the deep, warm waters of the southern Atlantic ocean, off the coasts of South America and southwest Africa.

What I Remember, What I Know Written by Larry Audlaluk

L

arry Audlaluk has seen incredible changes in his lifetime. Born in northern Quebec, he relocated with his family to the High Arctic in the early 1950s. They were promised a land of plenty. They discovered an inhospitable polar desert. Sharing memories both painful and joyous, Larry takes the reader on a journey to the Arctic as his family struggles to survive and new communities are formed. By turns heartwrenching and humorous, Larry tells of his journey through relocation, illness, residential schooling, and the encroachment of southern culture.

Larry Audlaluk was born in Uugaqsiuvik, a small camp west of Inukjuak in northern Quebec. He was relocated to the High Arctic with his family when he was two years old. Larry was inducted into the Order of Canada for his years working as an ambassador for the people of Grise Fiord, Canada’s northernmost civilian settlement, and is the community’s longest-living resident.

An excerpt from What I Remember, What I Know Many stories have been written about how Inuit families were relocated to the High Arctic. The one most written about is economic opportunity. The other is sovereignty. The writers are always careful to use the word “claims” when they’re talking about sovereignty, as if to make our claims untrue. The story is long, complicated, and documented by various groups, besides the official records. It has been told from so many angles and moods, from social and political perspectives. I will tell you the story of my family’s relocation from personal experience.

assive, elusive, and always deserving of respect, the walrus is one of the Arctic’s most recognizable animals. For thousands of years, Arctic residents have shared the coastlines and waters of the Arctic with these huge beasts. Often misunderstood by people who have not had first-hand encounters with them, walruses are known to those who share their habitat as somewhat unpredictable creatures, always deserving of caution when encountered. From close encounters with angry walruses bent on destroying boats and chasing off humans to witnessing the attentive care of a walrus mother with its calf, this book gives readers from outside the Arctic a first-hand look at what life alongside walruses is really like. Aiviq: Life with Walruses features stunning wildlife photography by acclaimed photographer Paul Souders accompanied by first-hand accounts from people living alongside this enormous sea mammal. Paul Souders is a professional photographer and has been travelling around the world, across all seven continents, for more than thirty years. His images have appeared around the globe in a wide variety of publications, including National Geographic, Geo in France and Germany, and Time and Life magazines, as well as hundreds of publishing and advertising projects. His recent photography work in the Arctic has drawn wide acclaim, including first-place awards at the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition in 2011 and 2013, the National Geographic Photo of the Year contest in 2013, and Grand Prize in the 2014 Big Picture Competition. Over the last three decades he has visited more than sixty-five countries and has been slapped by penguins, head-butted by walruses, terrorized by lions, and menaced by vertebrates large and small.

utaraq and Simonie are eager to go on their first hunting trip with their father. As they load up their snowmobile and sled for the trip, Nutaraq hopes that she will catch her first caribou, with some help from her dad. But as the trip nears its end and Nutaraq still hasn’t caught her first caribou, she tries her hardest to follow all of her father’s advice about how Inuit traditionally hunted on the land. Focusing not only on basic, practical hunting techniques but also on traditional values surrounding the treatment of animals and the sharing of food, this book introduces young readers to traditional Inuit hunting practices and treatment of game. Chris Giroux came into the world during a raging blizzard that grounded all the planes, so his mother gave birth to him in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, rather than Iqaluit. Spending most of his childhood living with his Inuit grandparents, Chris learned about the land, animals, survival, and how to live in balance with nature. He learned from an early age to love and respect the land and his elders and made sure to pass this gratitude for the land’s gifts to his own children. Our First Caribou Hunt is Chris’s first children’s book. It captures treasured memories of taking his own children hunting on the land. Jennifer Noah grew up in the south but always had a fondness for the North. She would often write short stories about Inuit children in her primary school years. Jennifer hopes to continue writing for children and sharing the rich knowledge and traditions of Inuit through her written work. Hwei Lim draws comics (the Boris & Lalage series; Spera: Volume 1; and Mirror, with Emma Rios) and illustrates books (The Spirit of the Sea, Animals Illustrated: Narwhal, and Dragonhearted). Hwei lives in Malaysia.
