From generation to generation, Innu men and women have acquired and transmitted knowledge on a wide variety of subjects, ensuring the community’s survival. AMIK collects Traditional Indigenous Knowledge (TIK) relating to coastal and maritime species and land. Through various projects, AMIK collects and shares TIK by the means of various media (documentaries, reports, etc.) within the Aboriginal communities to ensure their transmission to future generations. AMIK also integrates the TIK collected to modern scientific knowledge, for the purpose of solution making and the creation of innovative management models adapted to the communities.
