1. According to several reports I've read, some of the researchers involved did ask the Inuit.

2. Been there, endured that before and probably will again. No fun at all. :-(

Hope they were accurate

Re #1. Per the subject-line, if so, have those consulted been getting loud credit? (I haven't been paying close attention.)

Re #2. Worked today anyway, am now working on double-dose of generic neocitran. Hope to sleep well, post movie review in morning.

Re: Not sure about accuracy, but here we go...

Thanks a lot for those links; very interesting stuff. And good to see that some credit is going to aboriginal histories, though my impression remains it was still downplayed at the big announcement.

I admit, I'm probably a little less sceptical about the potential accuracy of long-term oral history than I was a few minutes ago.

CBC was also rerunning a Mansbridge-hosted piece on Newsworld-as-was from 2012 earlier tonight, and that also reinforced the references to Inuit historians and their work in preserving oral storytelling.
