ISBN: 9781897568194

Publication Date: Sep 2014

My hope is that this book ignites a lively discussion on Inuktut. Protecting and enhancing a language in the face of globalization seems like an impossible task. Yet, I envision a place where the mother tongue is Inuktut and children have the opportunity, as I did, to learn about themselves by listening to and speaking it." - The Honourable Paul Okalik, Nunavut Minister of Culture and Heritage

"My hope is that this book ignites a lively discussion on Inuktut. Protecting and enhancing a language in the face of globalization seems like an impossible task. Yet, I envision a place where the mother tongue is Inuktut and children have the opportunity, as I did, to learn about themselves by listening to and speaking it. I visualize Inuktut boosting our economy by teaching its speakers to use other parts of their brain and, in doing so, fostering innovation. I envision a place where the majority of its residents are trilingal. The chanllenge before us is immense and our work requires renewed focus." - The Honourable Paul Okalik, Nunavut Minister of Culture and Heritage
