are Aboriginal peoples of Canada that have traditionally used and occupied, and currently use and occupy, the lands and waters of the area ranging from the Yukon and Northwest Territories to northern Quebec and Labrador. They are sometimes refereed to as ‘Eskimo’, which is considered a derogatory term by the Inuit themselves. Politically, the Inuit were never included in the Indian Act, but became a federal responsibility in 1939. In 1972, the Inuit Tapirisat of Canada (ITC) was established to preserve their culture.
