dc.description.abstractCommunity collaboration has become increasingly common in Arctic environmental research. While experienced hunters and trappers possess the resources necessary to effectively form research partnerships, similar opportunities for local Inuit youth are limited. Finding pathways to increase local scientific literacy for Inuit youth has been identified as an important step in the continuation of high-quality Arctic environmental research. This project initiated a dialogue with community members of Pond Inlet, Nunavut, on the role of environmental researchers in contributing to Inuit youth’s scientific literacy, and in enhancing researcher-youth collaboration through research activities. A two-month community stay was central to the collection of primary data for this study. Immersion within the community was essential for forming meaningful relationships that supported this research. Research methods included interviews, workshops, and participant observation. Results revealed strategies for enhancing engagement in environmental research that could encourage greater scientific literacy for Inuit youth in Pond Inlet.en_US
