About Us

“Inuit knowledge, culture, language and history have undergone immense lifestyle changes. The role of elders in sustaining and promoting oral and cultural traditions through our programs are important for future generations. We work towards ensuring that the Government of Nunavut preserves, develops and enhances Nunavut’s culture, heritage, and languages for all Nunavummiut. I encourage you to browse through our website and make use of the tools and information that will allow you to learn more about Inuit Culture and Heritage” – 

Hon. George Kuksuk, Minister of Culture and Heritage,
Minister of Languages
