Uqarluta Inuinnaqtun is a project of the Pitquhirnikkut Ilihautiniq / Kitikmeot Heritage Society and is powered by a passionate team and a growing community. The programming and initiatives that have been put in place to revitalize our language have ongoing operational costs and require the time and expertise of dedicated teachers, fluent mentors, expert linguists and countless other support personnel.

As a registered charity and non-profit organization, we rely on passionate supporters like you to ensure that our language and culture survive and thrive. When you support the Pitquhirnikkut Ilihautiniq / Kitikmeot Heritage Society, you help us preserve and renew Inuinnait knowledge, language and culture. Your generosity sustains cultural and educational programming that strengthens Inuinnait identity and cultural vibrancy.

We greatly appreciate contributions of all amounts. Every gift adds up to help support programs and initiatives that have a direct and profound impact on current and future generations.  


Current Needs


We're initiating a Master-Apprentice Language Pilot Program that will pair fluent Inuinnaqtun speakers (mentors) with dedicated language learners (apprentices) for 300 hours of one-on-one language immersion to begin a community-wide process to revitalize our language. Support the Akhuuqhimajara Inuinnaqtun! / I'm all in for Inuinnaqtun! campaign.
