Transmission du savoir-être au jeune enfant inuit, parole et silence en milieux institutionnels, Nunavik, Arctique québécois

Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to study the way in which Inuit values are transmitted to young children attending to preschool and healthcare institutions. In Kuujjuaq, the most populated village in Nunavik, more than half of the children aged under five years are registered in preschool institutions, when all the children are under the care of health services and are familiar with English language. Verbal and non verbal communication practices are described and analyzed with the focus on the way they influence child development. This study is the result of a qualitative research based on 150 hours of observation in preschool institutions, about 30 hours of observation in healthcare institutions and 30 interviews. The findings of the research show that children exposure to public spaces, where English and Inuttitut languages are spoken, leads to a variety of influences on value transmission, also conditioned by interactional circumstances and Inuit childrearing practices. The thesis also reveals how Inuit concept of education contributes to the development of children sense of autonomy and solidarity.
