Child Rearing Manual (2010)

The purpose of this manual is to teach Inuit families about traditional Inuit child-rearing practices and show how these methods can be used today.

The author is an Inuk healer and elder from Pangnirtung, Nunavut, and the text has been directly translated into English from her traditional teaching, handwritten in Inuktitut syllables. The content and sentence structure have been minimally edited in order to maintain the integrity of the author’s work and oral traditional knowledge.

The manual includes sections on how best to engage the interest of young children; the importance of the extended family; and the roles of mothers and fathers in the family.
