Inuktitut – Issue 123

By August 2, 2018 No Comments

Issue 123 of Inuktitut celebrates the arts, especially the diversity that Inuit show in art.

Willie Thrasher speaks to Inuktitut about his decades-long career in music. The play, Kiviuq Returns, is displayed in a photo essay. Martha Kyak’s iPad sketches make an appearance. And Taqralik Partidge’s inspiring new fiction is paired with Megan Kyak-Monteith’s equally impressive watercolour drawings in this issue.

Also featured is a story about the daring journey a team took from Sanikiluaq to Kuujjuarapik by snowmobile, all in the name of science. And something’s cooking in Inuvik’s food processing kitchen – and it’s not your usual country food.

Finally, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami President Natan Obed writes about the important work ITK is doing co-developing language legislation, and developing a unified national writing system for Inuktut.
