For the past 30 years, the archaeology department of the Avataq Cultural Institute has been organizing archaeological field schools in keeping with an educational mandate entrusted to the Institute by the elders of Nunavik. Over time, the purpose of the schools has changed, and the fieldwork experience has become a tool to encourage young people to pursue their education. New educational activities have been gradually added to improve youth engagement and success. With the project Sivunitsatinnut ilinniapunga (“For our future, I’m going to school”), we have attempted to go even further. This paper presents the stages of this project and analyzes its impact by looking at this experience from the perspective of the evolution of field schools in Nunavik. We discuss how we can assess the results of this initiative and improve its impact for young people with a view to developing Inuit archaeology and Northern education.
