The interest of aboriginal landscape imagery in the Tursujuq Park creation (Nunavik, Canada)

Abstract : The Tursujuq National Park Project (aka Guillaume Delisle-Lac-à-L'Eau Claire) is now in progress. Beyond the preliminary regulatory studies carried out since 2002 by both the Quebec government and the Inuit institutions, in order to develop a network of national parks, the research focuses on understanding how the analysis of the Tursujuq park landscape perceptions could complement and adjust the park's conception. The perceptions analysis deals with the iconographic landscaping representations and their related practices. The purpose is to create and analyse inuit landscape images of the park's perimeter or vicinity. The fact of choosing a landscape representations vector for the study has made possible the creation of an Inuit Landcape Imagery via a Landcape Photography Contest and a Children's Landscape Drawing Workshop. The framing and composition or the photographs, showing a selection of places and areas as well as particular elements of landscape, will contribute to a better analysis of underlying landscape preferences. These landscape representations will also bring out associated landscape practices. Ultimately, such expressions of landscape imagery are expected to weigh in the decision-making process of the perimeter, zoning and routing of the future Tursujuq National Park.
