ICC was founded in 1977 when Inupiaq Eben Hopson invited to Barrow, Alaska numerous other Inuit to discuss ways in which a common response could be developed to address increasing attacks on the Inuit way of life, environment, and human rights that were initiated by industry, states, and others with interests in the Arctic.
The Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) participated in the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 75) virtual meetings, held November 16-20, 2020.
