Inuit Women’s Traditional Knowledge Workshop on the Amauti and Intellectual Property Rights

Project Description

This workshop was the first national consultation with Inuit women in Canada on the issues of protecting their cultural property, traditional knowledge and intellectual property rights. It was also the culmination of several years of research and development. Pauktuutit would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to the many individuals and organizations that made this workshop possible.

Pauktuutit would also like to thank the residents of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, who made the delegates from across the Arctic and our special guests from Panama and Peru feel very much at home. The discussions and outcomes would not have been possible without the participation of all those in attendance.
