This is a free database of Inuit photographs Library and Archives Canada has shared online in hopes of receiving assistance in identifying Inuit portrayed in the photographs. Identifying these photographs will help with the family history and genealogy efforts of Inuit descendants. “Welcome to Project Naming. The goal of this project is the identification of Inuit portrayed in some of the photographic collections of Library and Archives Canada (LAC) in Ottawa. It is an ongoing initiative, which enables Nunavut youth to connect with Elders and to better understand their past. It also helps to bridge the cultural differences and geographical distances between Nunavut and the more southern parts of Canada.”

“Project Naming is a collaborative effort between Nunavut Sivuniksavut, which offers a special college program based in Ottawa, serving Inuit youth from Nunavut; Nunavut’s Department of Culture, Languages, Elders and Youth (CLEY); and LAC.”

“As a tribute to the importance of language in Project Naming, this Web exhibition is available in Inuktitut, English and French.”
