The population of Nunavik is largely ethnic Inuit but its people, particularly the young, are 11 times more likely to commit suicide then other Canadians.

Experts cite poverty, unstable family lives, but some experts also blame the government's policies that separated native children from their families.

Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Nunavik where elders are using tribal traditions to try to save their community.
