Suvaguuq

Project Description

Traditional childbirth practices were intrinsic to the Inuit way of life and crucial to maintaining the social fabric of Inuit communities.

The bonds within the family and community were thus reinforced and intensified much beyond the birth event, extending to a child’s education and place in the community. Children had a special bond with the person who delivered them, especially if it was a grandparent.
