The Man in the North Conference on Community Development (Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada, 18-21 November 1970).
Bell, Elizabeth; And Others
To determine the objectives and priorities of the northerners for community development in the North, as expressed by their hopes and aspirations for their own future, the Man in the North (MIN) Project of the Arctic Institute of North America decided to bring together community-development specialists and residents of the Canadian Arctic and of Alaska. A compilation of the opinions expressed by the conference participants (the majority of whom were Indians and Eskimos), this publication is divided into 3 parts. Part I summarizes the 4 workshops and concludes with a list of priorities for research work: communication, transportation, community centers, school dropouts, a history book of the North, teachers, and social health; Part II contains a discussion of certain technical aspects of the MIN conference organization (e.g., preparation, logistics, pattern, involvement of northern participants, native languages, and audiovisual recording); and Part III is a 4-page report on immediate follow-up activities after the conference. The main discussions at the conference took place in the 4 workshops and covered such subjects as social health; architecture, town planning, and housing; education; youth and old people; communication and transportation; employment; land rights; and civic administration.
