February 1-29, 2016

Nunavut's annual celebration of Inuktut and Inuit culture. Let's learn and teach. Let's sing and tell stories. Let's take action together.

The theme for Uqausirmut Quviasuutiqarniq 2016 is Inuit Annuraaqausingit ("Inuit clothing"). Inuit clothing technology enabled our ancestors to thrive in the Arctic environment. Our traditional and contemporary clothing designs are an important form of art and cultural expression, showing relationships, spirituality, and our perceptions of the world.
