Uqqaritsautit – Advanced and Traditional Inuktut Terminology

Are you an Inuktut-speaking professional who would like to enhance your understanding and your ability to use advanced and traditional Inuktut terminology?

This course explores Inuktut terminology in areas such as environmental knowledge, justice, community relations and human health. The Inuit language at this articulate level features rich and very specific terminology although many terms have disappeared from daily use with the dominance of English in the workplace and education system. With efforts underway in Nunavut to advance the use of Inuktut in the workplace, there is a strong need for advanced Inuit terminology in a number of fields.  This course will enable you to understand and use rich Inuktut terminology with greater confidence.
