In full colour with photos of the 145 contributing Inuit elders, The Caribou Taste Different Now grounds the discussions, debates, and discourses about climate change to material and everyday life in the contemporary Canadian Arctic. Climate change is expected to have a particular impact on the Arctic regions of the world. Melting permafrost, changing wildlife migration patterns, and new species of flora and fauna threaten to forever change the landscape and lives of the North. In this book, Inuit Elders and knowledge holders from eight Canadian Arctic communities - Kugluktuk, Baker Lake, Pangnirtung, and Pond Inlet in Nunavut; Umiujaq, Kangiqsujuaq, and Kangiqsualujjuaq in Nunavik; and Nain in Nunatsiavut - share their observations of climate change, including how it is affecting traditional ways of life. With a foreword by Mary Simon, this distinct book foregrounds the words of those most intimately poised to observe the effects of climate change. The 145 Inuit contributing this study share their personal knowledge and experience on the land, lending unique insight alongside scientific analysis and research findings. In English and Inuktitut.
