Charlotte's Blog Entry1

What I really liked today was how different the Inuits’ culture was compared to ours. When we went to the Inuit school wherever you looked there were old photographs of people, elders, hunters, students, everywhere. It all looked like a whole big family, everyone knew each other.
In our city, we aren’t friendly with everyone who walks past. We don’t know everyone and if they are nice let alone dangerous. In this school there was a freezer with the carcasses of polar bears, musk ox, and caribou that the students could touch and study. I also liked how the school was trying to keep the old traditions, they were learning the main language Inuktituk and English and learning how to build sleds and things. I think that the school was a very good school. If every school were like that I think the world would be a lot better because culture is a very important thing.
