Nicole Beaudry


After pursuing studies in musicology and anthropology, Nicole Beaudry completed her PhD in ethnomusicology in 1986 at the Université de Montréal, in Québec, Canada. Her research interests first focused mainly on musical and game-playing traditions of Canada’s Eastern Arctic Inuit and Southwest Alaska's Yupik peoples. Since 1987, she has pursued these research interests in Canada's Northwest Territories, more specifically in the Denendeh region, based on research travels to Délı̨nę and other communities between 1988 and 1992, and more recently in 2012 and 2014. She seeks to deeply understand the evolving cultural and social meanings of song, story and games in the modern context of language and cultural revitalization as well as within self-governance building processes.
