Public Lecture – Iqaluit Mayor Madeleine Redfern

Iqaluit Mayor Madeleine Redfern will discuss the Qikiatani Truth Commission (QTC) and its final report. She was the executive director of the QTC. From 2007 to 2010, the QTC interviewed almost 350 witnesses during public hearings, reviewed 130 interviews taped by the Qikiqtani Inuit Association between 2004 and 2006, and amassed an authoritative collection of historical documentation about the relationships among Inuit and governments from 1950 to 1975. Through this work, it documented in detail many of the decisions, actions, and consequences that led to the social and economic transformation of the Baffin region.​
