We would like to thank the ‘Chesterfield Inlet Elder’s Group Committee’, locally known as the Parnaijiit (Katimajialaangit), for supporting this initiative that celebrates the spirit and identity of our people to preserve our culture and traditions for generations to come. The Parnaijiit committee mission statement in Chesterfield Inlet is to ‘Preserve Inuit traditional knowledge (Inuit Piqqusituqanginnit kamaniq), Inuktitut language, the oral History, an Archeological and Heritage sites’. The My Community App project uses the technology to bridge the gap between generations of knowledge by engaging our Youth and Elders and members in the community to share their stories.

We would like to acknowledge the Victor Sammurtok School students and staff, the Elders and members of the community who took part in this initiative, also the local Economic Development Officer (CEDO) of the Hamlet of Chesterfield Inlet, for moving this project forward with their dedication and support in implementing to preserve (Inuit) culture and traditions.
