To fund a thesis project and establish a foundation for education and training in recording the life stories of the elderly and those in palliative care. The recording interviewer offers 4 objectives: comfort; closure; legacy; posterity - i.e. comfort to the often marginalized and forgotten; help in closure as review and catharsis takes place; preservation of both a recorded legacy for families and the wisdom of the aged for posterity at large. The trained interviewer offers a loving and non-judgemental 'presence' to 'presence', a human face to a human face, in the reconciling of the near death experience when there is often only loneliness and despair. In Hebrew, the word 'presence' means the 'Faces' of God. The Inuksuk Book Foundation is to be about preserving those Faces so that others 'will know they were here.'
