Inuktitut Magazine
The Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) represents Inuit in the 53 communities of the Northwest Territories (Inuvialuit Settlement Region), Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut. The organization also publishes (in three languages) Inuktitut Magazine, a periodical loaded with culturally rich text and images, a very worthwhile read. While I have been frustrated in my attempts over the past several years to secure a subscription to Inuktitut Magazine, I am delighted to report that ITK has mounted current issues as well as the complete collection of its periodical, going all the way back to its inception in 1959! This is well worth exploring.

Inhabit Media’s Book Shelf
Inhabit Media is an Inuit owned publishing company. According to their website, “Our mandate is to promote research in Inuit mythology and the traditional Inuit knowledge of Nunavummiut (residents of Nunavut). Our authors, storytellers and artists bring this knowledge to life in a way that is accessible to readers in both northern and southern Canada.

Visit Inhabit Media’s website to drool over their sumptuous collection of handsomely illustrated books, which, for sure, aren’t just for kids despite being described as such. There are many other titles that are written for adults plus an award winning animated film, The Country of Wolves!

Here’s a great solution to completing your holiday gift list and for your own holiday season enjoyment!
