Inuinnait Cultural Programming

OUR
VALUES

Through all of our decisions, programs, and activities, our staff and Board are guided by the following values:

INUINNAQTUN IMMERSION

We commit to playing a leadership role in Inuinnaqtun revitalization. To accomplish this, we provide an immersive Inuinnaqtun environment in our facility through the Elders in Residence program and the building of Inuinnaqtun capacity in all of our staff.

INUINNAIT GOVERNANCE

We advance the level of Inuinnait governance in research through our Inuinnait board of directors, staff and Executive Director. Inuinnait consultation is the basis for our mandate to lead cultural and linguistic renewal.

FLEXIBILITY AND INNOVATION

We are always learning, changing and adapting to best achieve our mission. We embrace new technology and ideas, as well as change and adapt them for Inuinnait use.

COLLABORATION

We increase our expertise and impact through partnership networks with community and Inuit organizations, government, Inuinnait experts, academic researchers, and all parties interested in preserving and renewing Inuinnait culture.

COMMUNITY WELLBEING

We are committed to the preservation and mobilization of Inuinnait knowledge with the goal of supporting traditional methods of cultural renewal that contribute to community wellness.
