Native American Tribes of Nunavut
For completeness' sake, we have included a page for the most recent Canadian territory, Nunavut.
However, there are no official Native American tribes in Nunavut. Since Nunavut is a majority-Native state--
more than 80% of the population are Inuit--
the regional government is itself Inuit-controlled, and no separate government is needed.
Here is the address and website of the Nunavut regional government:
Government of Nunavut
1104 Inuksugait Plaza
Iqaluit, Nunavut X0A 0H0
As for Native American (non-Inuit) people, fewer than a hundred American Indians live in
Nunavut and they do not have a tribal organization there. However, part of the traditional
Dene hunting territory does fall within
its borders, so the Nunavut government also recognizes the hunting and trapping rights of the Dene
tribes from Manitoba.
