The Art of Inuinnait Drum Dance is a 50-page booklet commissioned by the Kitikmeot Heritage Society of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. It presents the culture and history of the Inuinnait people's Drum Dance tradition. The booklet contains both the English version and an Inuinnait language version, a dialect of Inuktituk. Extensive research was conducted at Canada's National Archives and Museum of Civilization. My role was as researcher and first author.
Inuinnait Drum Dancers, Volume One, Two, and Three are music albums on CD published by the Kitikmeot Heritage Society (KHS) of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. I was the audio engineer and producer of this collection. In 2011, I spent 2 weeks in Kugluktuk (a.k.a. Coppermine) recording performances by a group of elders.
As with all indigenous peoples of Canada, this traditional cultural practice was forbidden for generations by government and church authorities. The creation of these recordings and distribution throughout Nunavut was a project by KHS to make this music more accessible to younger generations.
