Summary
This is an ethnographic account of the way knowledge about Inuit suicide is produced and a phenomenological reflection on suffering and hope for new life for Inuit youth in Nunavut. The dissertation includes a historical analysis and non-Inuit perceptions of traditional Inuit elder suicide practices and beliefs. The author covers many topics related to the relocation of Inuit families to communities organized by the Canadian government. These include the bureaucratic use of Eskimo disc numbers and the disruption of traditional kinship ties and personal identity. The research examines the modern epidemic of Inuit youth suicide including community-based solutions and programs, such as the Kamatsiaqtut help line
