The Arctic Indigenous Wellness Foundation elder’s advisory council is made up of elders from each of the main regions of the NWT and Nunavut. The following map shows the communities and regions that our elders represent. Many of our elders are quiet and peaceful people and have asked us just to list the communities that they come from; other elders have been listed by name under their region.
