Pitseolak Pfeifer

Carleton University
MA Student, Northern Studies
Born and raised in Iqaluit, Pitseolak is currently building on over 25 years of Inuit advocacy in
his M.A. in Northern Studies at Carleton University. His research interests lie at the intersection
of sustainable Northern community development, Indigenous epistemologies, and socio-cultural
and political transformations in Inuit homelands. He combines his interdisciplinary studies with
consulting work and with participation in applied and community-based research projects related
to Indigenous issues. Often a guest lecturer on Arctic matters, he also remains an active
member of the Inuit community both in Iqaluit and in Ottawa, offering his skills and experience to
help address community needs.
