  • Certificate in Aboriginal and Indigenous Studies
  • Tradition + Transition website (Research partnership between Inuktitut and Memorial)
    Tradition & Transition is a five-year partnership between Memorial University of Newfoundland and the Nunatsiavut Government, which represents the Inuit of Labrador. The goal of the partnership is to strengthen both traditional Inuit knowledge and the research being done in Nunatsiavut, in order to ensure the continuing vitality of Labrador Inuit culture.
    The partnership is founded in equal participation by the two organizations and is meant to create a meaningful exchange of knowledge, a place where academic curiosity and the knowledge of lived experience of the Labrador Inuit meet to address the present and future needs of Nunatsiavut.
