IJI (ᐃᔨ), Inuktitut for EYE, is the literary arts collaboration between Inuit Traditional Knowledge Keeper (and RCGS Explorer-in-Residence) Johnny Issaluk and Writer/Environmental Humanities Scholar Kelly Bushnell.


Through public writing projects, IJI seeks to promote education, understanding, and cooperation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous ecological epistemologies (ways of knowing/understanding nature).
