The Fall 2022 Special Edition brings together twelve wonderful contributions from Chaim Christiana Andersen, Rosalina Naqitarvik and Prof. Geoff Rayner-Canham on the chemistry behind the traditional knowledge of the Inuit People.
Not included in the Indian Act, the Inuit People hold a separate legal status in Canada from First Nations and we acknowledge their importance in Canada’s history. We also acknowledge the various traditional lands and territories associated with Chem 13 News and the authors of this Fall 2022 Special Edition.
