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.
