In partnership with St. Clair College Tutoring Services, St. Clair College Indigenous Student Services proudly presents Inuit Culture virtual learning series! This is the second of four separate online sessions that will cover Inuit culture and history with guest speaker, Muckpaloo Ipeelie.
Muckpaloo Ipeelie, born in Iqaluit Nunavut grew up amongst the Urban Inuit community and schooled at Inuit head start in Ottawa. Listen along as Muckpaloo tells the journey about transition of rural to urban Inuit in Canadian history. She talks about Inuit communities, and her journey back towards deepening her understanding of passed down Inuit traditions, knowledge sharing and storytelling. This recounting and sharing of knowledge allow participants to engage and learn through an interactive real-time seminar. Through spreading awareness of Canadian history, plights and triumphs of the Inuit, cultural practices and modern struggles; you will be able to ask questions, give opinions, and interact with Muckpaloo as she goes through the human experience of being an Inuk in Canada.
When Muckpaloo is not guest speaking towards Inuit culture and knowledge, she spends her time acquiring her advanced diploma in the field of Medical Laboratory Technology at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre; building her Ipeelie Creations Bead Loom Bracelet Brand; and also co-founds the Retro Crepe Café. In the summer of 2020 Muckpaloo completed an Indigenous Culinary Internship at “Naagan a foraged feast” with Chef Zack Keeshig.
