Compendium of Resources in Family Violence

BELIEVE – ASK – CONNECT Phase II

As part of the Pauktuutit website, the compendium is intended to present a snapshot and web-link to developed resources, such as Inuit videos, teaching manuals, posters, fact sheets and other important family violence documents. It has previously been difficult to find what’s available and how to access those Inuit/Indigenous resources has been challenging. With this site contributors can offer an array of products which will aid governments, organizations, territories, and shelter and community workers in responding to Inuit family violence needs and priorities.

The compendium offers an easy-to-navigate, comprehensive, web-based listing of resources, listing the author, title, a brief description of the resource, year, language(s), and a link to the website and/or link to the PDF file. It is listed according to date, with the most recent publications listed first. Inuit and other Indigenous resources on family violence are made available with links to the actual documents and resources, clicking on the link will bring the user to the website where it is located. 

Inuit and Indigenous groups who engage with the Inuit for their resources, as well as organizations and projects are encouraged to keep the compendium up to date by submitting new materials which can be added to the compendium.
