Breaking the Silence


Breaking the Silence

DVD “Nipaittuugumairtut. Breaking the Silence”, 2015.

This video is a prevention tool on family violence presenting the testimonies of four Inuit women from Nunavik (Arctic Quebec) who share their experiences and reflections on family violence. Having themselves suffered from or witnessed violence, they wish to break the silence. They want to provide other women with advice and hope in order to restore peace to their communities. This video can be used as a tool to prevent family violence in Inuit communities and elsewhere.

It is part of a broader project called Satulauqta! (Regain our well-being!) which has been developed by Saturviit and funded by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada under its Family Violence Prevention Program.

Any person or organization interested in organizing a prevention or healing activity on family violence may contact Saturviit and ask for a copy of the video. The video comes with an information booklet explaining what is abuse and what resources are available.
