CBC News: ‘Wikipedia of Inuit knowledge’ captures hunting, weather data in Hudson Bay

CBC News: ‘Wikipedia of Inuit knowledge’ captures hunting, weather data in Hudson Bay. “A new database is creating an encyclopedia of knowledge for Inuit observations of the sea ice, wildlife and land in and around Hudson Bay. Inuit who live in the community of Sanikiluaq, Nunavut, have been noticing differences in their environment for years — from sea ice freezing in ways it didn’t in the past, to seals eating fish that they never used to. Now, thanks to a new technology called Siku, set up by the Arctic Eider Society, hunters will have a way to track those changes and share them with other Inuit.”
