mulberry outlet store york Neil Christopher
Neil Christopher moved to Resolute Bay, Nunavut, after teachers’ college. There he worked as a high school science teacher, helping to develop a community school (in the past students were sent to a residential school in Pond Inlet). During his time in Resolute Bay, Neil fell in love with the North the landscape, the wildlife, and the culture.
It was also in those first years in the North, that Neil was introduced to the rich mythology of the Canadian Inuit. Through the stories and artwork of his high school students, Neil began to take an interest in the oral history of the Arctic.
In 2006, Neil and Louise Flaherty (Director: Inuit languages Program / NAC) created Inhabit Media. It is the only independent publishing company located in the Canadian Arctic.
The company focus is to preserve and promote the stories, knowledge and talent of Inuit and northern Canada. It is a very successful enterprise that has published many works for Nunavut Arctic College and various other Government of Nunavut agencies. Presently, they have a large undertaking with the Department of Education.
Consequently, Neil has decided to invest himself fully in Inhabit Media operations and pursue his love of writing and publishing. As well, he has been in discussions with the Aboriginal Peoples’ Television Network (APTN) to begin development of a bilingual (Inuktitut and English), preschool television program for Nunavut.
This program would fill a much needed space in northern television and in preschool programs.
Neil has been a dedicated and diligent instructor in the Nunavut Teacher Education Program (NTEP). His commitment to excellence is valued and valuable.
We thank Neil for his service to the Education Programs division of Nunavut Arctic College and wish him well as Inhabit Media moves forward with growth initiatives and new approaches to promoting Nunavut.
