Nunavut: Changing the Map of Canada*

  • 1992 ----- color ----- 25 min ----- vhs
  • Traces the forging of an historic constitutional partnership between the Inuit people of the Eastern Arctic and the Government of Canada. The map of Canada will be redrawn for the first time since Newfoundland entered confederation in recognition of the new territory of Nunavut. The Inuit land claims agreement which will proceed with Nunavut is a treaty between the Inuit and Canada which defines Inuit rights to lands. It is the biggest claims settlement ever negotiated by the government and an aboriginal people. This new partnership provides the framework for the environmental management and economic development of one fifth of the land mass of Canada.
