Supporting community heritage research has been an integral part of the IPinCH Project's work. Over the past 8+ years, IPinCH has collaborated with partners such as the Inuvialuit, the Penobscot Nation, the Ainu, the Hopi Tribe, and the Moriori, to address cultural heritage challenges identified by these communities. In 2013, IPinCH received the inaugural Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada Partnership Award for our innovative community-driven approach to research.
