Abstract:

This paper presents the preliminary results of a research project, sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, conducted in a Canadian Inuit (formally knowned as Eskimo) educational setting. Using an open-ended interview guide, 12 school principals were asked to share their understanding of what it means to be an educational leader in an Inuit context. Four themes emerged from the analysis: school principals as mediators between two cultures, power-sharing and distributed leadership in Inuit schools, «to belong or not to belong to the Inuit community», and regional inequities.
