The purpose of this paper is to provide an account of the enterprising Aivilingmiut people of Repulse Bay (Naujaat), formerly a hub of the now‐defunct whaling industry.
This paper is based on literature spanning 185 years from 1825 to 2009.
Throughout history, the Aivilingmiut people appear to have been an enterprising community, adapting well to change. Nowadays, however, the absence of business infrastructure may be a significant barrier to the development of small business opportunities in Repulse Bay.
Regardless of how enterprising a community is, the absence of business infrastructure can impede entrepreneurship.
There is no similar paper about the Aivilingmiut people of Repulse Bay.
