This chapter demonstrates how Inuit have combined a numeric, institutional, cultural, and linguistic approach to creating an Aboriginally-sensitive public service in Nunavut. It argues that the potential to realize this goal will be restricted if numerical representation and cultural change are not considered together and the project is connected to broader processes to improve Inuit graduation rates. The chapter also considers the potential to sustain Inidigenous approaches to government in subnational units that are also shaped by broader interactions with the Canadian state.
