Gatineau, Quebec, April 13, 2006 — The Canadian Museum of Civilization invites you to meet Béatrice Collignon during its Coffee & Conversation series on April 25. She will share her knowledge of Inuit of the central Canadian Artic and explain the tight relationship between their specific knowlege of the land framework, their values and their identity, as described in her recently launched book Knowing Places: The Inuinnait, Landscapes, and the Environment.

Author and Associate Professor at the Department of Geography of the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, Béatrice Collignon first met the Inuinnait in 1980, at an archaeological excavation near Ulukhaktok (then called Holman) and later dedicated her Ph.D. research to Inuinnait geographic knowledge.
