Uqausirmut Quviasuutiqarniq 2023

Are you ready to celebrate the unique heritage of Inuit language and traditions?

Get ready for Uqausirmut Quviasuutiqarniq 2023, the annual celebration of Inuktut language and culture in Nunavut! This year it’s happening in April!

The theme for this year is 'Qulliq,' the traditional Inuit oil lamp that has been used for thousands of years. The qulliq enabled our ancestors to survive in harsh conditions and reflects the warmth of Inuit culture and community.

Throughout the event, the Department of Culture and Heritage, in partnership with other Government of Nunavut departments, will be promoting a variety of activities and resources to celebrate Inuktut.

Mark your calendars and check back for updates because we’re planning the celebration of Inuktut language and culture during Uqausirmut Quviasuutiqarniq 2023. Let's shine a light on the beauty and importance of Inuktut!
