ABOUT INUK


Inuksite.com is designed specifically for children aged 3 to 6, and their parents and teachers. The site represents the interactive component of Inuk, the popular animated series broadcast in Canada by CBC, APTN and Tele-Quebec, and available in some 35 other countries.

Inuksite.com is a uniquely immersive internet offering, mainly because of the engaging voice and character of its host. With Inuk himself guiding children through his magical online world, what may be a child’s first web experience is sure to be a fun and easy one.

In addition to games and educational activities, Inuksite.com also reinforces the positive social values for which the series has become known. At the heart of each Inuk “webisode” lies the desire for peaceful problem resolution and collaborative decision-making.

Inuksite.com also enables a more detailed exploration of such subjects as unique Arctic animals and Inuit customs. Through the series’ characters, children are introduced to the lives of sled dogs, polar bears, and the nomadic Inuit peoples themselves.


INUKSITE’S MISSION

From its beginning, Inuk has been welcomed by Canadian teachers and educational professionals as an invaluable pedagogical tool to introduce young children to the life and culture of Canada’s Arctic, especially as they learn French or English as a second language.

Inuksite.com enhances and furthers that pedagogical approach by emphasizing human cooperation, respect and appreciation for the natural world, the life and environment of the Inuit, all through fun and easy Internet research.

To optimize the Inuk experience for you and your child, see the Parents’ Corner.
