Fair address: Nunavut Territorial Virtual Heritage Fair

Project: Huron

My project is about the Huron.  Our class studied different Aboriginal peoples from across Canada.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned about my topic was their lifestyle, how they used to live. I find it interesting because we have almost the same lifestyle. I really enjoyed learning about the Huron.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned about Huron people how they lived and how they survived. I think the Hurons are important because they were one of the First Peoples in Canada. I feel Canadians should know about the Huron because we gotta know everyone in Canada and respect our people.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I think my life is the same compared to the Huron because we both hunt to get food and clothes, I think I have some similarities with the Huron because as an Inuk, we share the same history as Aboriginals in Canada.

    Hi Tyrone, I agree that we should learn more about aboriginal people . In school, we learn some stuff but probably not enough.
