martha of the northFilm Screening: “Martha of the North”
Sunday June 7th at 4PM-5PM

In the mid-1950s, lured by false promises of a better life, Inuit families were displaced by the Canadian government and left to their own devices in the Far North. In this icy desert realm, Martha Flaherty and her family lived through one of Canadian history’s most sombre and little-known episodes.

CoppermineFilm Screening: “Coppermine”
Sunday June 14th at 4PM-5PM

This feature documentary introduces us to the Copper Inuit of the Coronation Gulf region of Canada’s Northwest Territories, one of the last aboriginal groups to be contacted by people from outside. When Doctor R.D. Martin arrived in Coppermine in 1929, he had to deal with one of the consequences of that contact: a full-blown tuberculosis epidemic.

Between-two-worlds

Film Screening: “Between Two Worlds”
Sunday June 21st at 4PM-5PM

Unknown to most Canadians today, Joseph Idlout was the subject of many films and books, and one the Inuit hunters pictured for many years on the back of Canada’s $2 bill. In this film Idlout’s son, Peter Paniloo, takes us on a journey through his father’s life – that of a man caught “between two worlds.”

my villageFilm Screening: “My Village in Nunavik”
Sunday June 28th at 4PM-5PM

Shot during 3 seasons, this documentary tenderly portrays village life in Puvirnituq on the shores of Hudson Bay in northern Quebec, as well as the elements that forge the character of its people: their history, the great open spaces and their unflagging humour.

 All activities are included with museum admission.
