Cooperative

“Cooperatives are created by people who have a specific need and who are willing to work together to operate and organize a company that will meet that need.”  Source 

“At the end of the 1950s, the Inuit had developed cooperatives that they managed themselves. These cooperative stores allowed the Inuit to control the sale of goods from outside their region, as well as the sale of the goods they created, such as soapstone sculptures. It was at this time that Inuit sculptors became recognized internationally. Arts and crafts became a source of revenue for some Inuit people.”  Visit Inuit 1980 Our economy.

Coopérative

“Les coopératives sont créées par des personnes qui ont un besoin spécifique et qui sont prêtes à travailler ensemble pour exploiter et organiser une entreprise qui répondra à ce besoin.” Source 

“À la fin des années 1950, les Inuits avaient développé des coopératives qu’ils géraient eux-mêmes. Ces magasins coopératifs permettaient aux Inuits de contrôler la vente de biens provenant de l’extérieur de leur région, ainsi que la vente des biens qu’ils créaient, comme les sculptures en pierre à savon. C’est à cette époque que les sculpteurs inuits ont acquis une reconnaissance internationale. L’art et l’artisanat sont devenus une source de revenus pour certains Inuits.”  Visitez le site Inuit 1980 Our economy.
