Daughters of Mikak: Celebrating Inuit Women’s Leadership in Nunatsiavut focuses on encouraging people to share stories that honour Nunatsiavut women.

The project was a Tradition & Transition initiative in 2015-2016, and it was co-ordinated by Andrea Procter (postdoctoral fellow, Memorial University) with an advisory working group of:

• Joan Andersen (Makkovik)
• Peggy Andersen (Nain)
• Kim Campbell-McLean (AnânauKatiget Tumingit Regional Inuit Women’s Association / North
West River)
• Ashley Dicker (Nain)
• Tracy Ann Evans-Rice (Nunatsiavut Government’s Status of Women Co-ordinator / Makkovik)
• Shirley Flowers (Happy Valley-Goose Bay)
• Joan Goudie (Postville)
• Beverly Hunter (Hopedale)
• Charlotte Wolfrey (Nunatsiavut Government’s Status of Women Co-ordinator / Rigolet)

The project team helped community members and students make digital stories about inspirational Nunatsiavut women, which we shared on the Daughters of Mikak Facebook site. These stories show how these Inuit women build and strengthen connections between people, and how they create strong communities. By focusing on personal stories of admiration, we are celebrating and magnifying Nunatsiavut women’s strength and ability to persevere through difficult times.
