Purpose – 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. Design/methodology/approach – This paper is based on literature spanning 185 years from 1825 to 2009. Findings – 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. Practical implications – Regardless of how enterprising a community is, the absence of business infrastructure can impede entrepreneurship. Originality/value – There is no similar paper about the Aivilingmiut people of Repulse Bay.
