Adriana Kusugak is the Executive Director of the Nunavut Literacy Council – Ilitaqsiniq in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Two programs offered through the Council include a traditional and modern sewing skills program and a contemporary and traditional food preparation program. Both programs are led by Elders, providing participants with a three to one ratio of teachers to students. Often, the programs will also bring in content specialists, like chefs, to provide their expertise in food preparation. The majority of participants who have taken part in either of the 4-month programs choose to either continue their education or re-engage in the workforce. The intergenerational transfer of knowledge also allows for the program to embed literacy activities into the traditional teachings.
