Nunavut Inuit Families

screen-shot-2013-05-06-at-11-20-04-am

The Inuit Population of the Canadian Arctic, totaling over 30,000,  have inhabited this land for thousands of years. They have not only a very rich oral tradition, but are also very artistic. They excel in the arts of sculpting, printmaking, tapestry, jewelry making and throat singing, amongst others.

The official languages of the Inuit are Inuktitut, Inuinaqtunn, and English. Due to the remoteness of the area, there are limited opportunities to acquire magazines. It is their hope that through MagazineLiteracy.org, they can join the efforts of other departments in the North that strive to broaden the horizons of their youth and work towards offering high quality, engaging literacy materials.
