In Inuinnaqtun, Kivgaqtuiniq means 'serving one another'.
When we think of the Kivgaqtuiniq Circle and the community of supporters it represents, we are reminded of being in an iglu looking up. From this inside vantage, you see the spiral of interlocking blocks of snow in place, each one contributing to building up the structure as a whole. From within our organization, we look at this community rallying around us, working as parts of a whole, connected and united through the shared goal to serve our mission.
We are grateful.
