With its creation in 1999, the new territory of Nunavut hoped to solve the social and economical problems it was facing. For the second time in the history of the Poles, indigenous people were given the right by the government to decide their future. The first Inuit to be recognized were the Inuit from Greenland who obtained autonomy from Denmark, who granted them home rule in 1979. After a long non-violent struggle, the Inuit from Nunavut, "the men" in Inuktitut, the Inuit language, received the power to control the vast area stretching from the frontier with Greenland to the frontier with Quebec from Ottawa. Via the Nunavut Act, Nunavut was separated from the Northwest Territories and became the third Canadian territory along with Yukon and the Northwest Territories (NWT). Their mandates and powers come from the federal government, while the provinces received their authority from the British Crown via the Constitution Act of 1867. Therefore, the Inuit of Nunavut could be observed as a model of perseverance and strength and also as a guideline for many other indigenous tribes. However, all the changes which took place in their society were not always beneficial to the population. Inuit had to adapt the occidental way of thinking in a very limited time.
