Inuit Language Week is coming soon! The Government of Nunavut’s Department of Culture and Heritage invites Nunavummiut to celebrate Inuktut during Uqausirmut Quviasutiqarniq – Inuit Language Week, from February 17 to 28.

This weeklong celebration of Inuktut is an important event for all Nunavummiut, especially children and youth. It’s an opportunity to learn and appreciate the history, use, status, importance and diversity of Inuktut across our territory.

Youth, who consider language a central part of their Inuit culture, inspired this year’s theme of:

Our language keeps our culture strong

The Department encourages Nunavummiut to plan language activities during this week, in their home, community, school, library, and on radio or even the Internet. For more information or ideas, please consult our website at:
