"Attention Class. Today We Learn..."

For centuries, the Inuit lived off what they called "country food" - wild meats and blubbers that were packed with nutrients. The cheap industrialized foods that are available today have resulted in increased obesity, diabetes, heart disease and eye problems.

Modern schools in Nunavut now teach the preparation of traditional foods, and students are taught useful skills such as how to prepare a freshly killed caribou. Caribou are plentiful in much of Nunavut, and the meat is a common meal in most homes.

Students are also taught how to use the caribou hide, sewing it into mittens, boots and other clothing items.

And instruction even goes further - right down to the construction of the sleds that are used during the long Arctic winter to hunt caribou, seals and other game.
