Expanding One's Environment for a Healthy Lifestyle (2010)

The author, an Inuk healer and elder from Pangnirtung, Nunavut, has drawn upon traditional Inuit practices in preparing this guide to living a healthy lifestyle.

The author uses the traditional igloo to explain the different components required to expand a person’s environment. The igloo’s foundation represents self knowledge; its snow blocks represent love and understanding within the family; and its porch points towards others in the community.

The author notes that the manual can be used by an individual or by a trainer leading a course.

The text has been directly translated into English from the author’s traditional teaching, handwritten in Inuktitut syllables. There has been only minimal editing of content and sentence structure, in order to maintain the integrity of the author’s work and oral traditional knowledge.
