The NCCAH has released a series of fact sheets in English, French and Inuktitut that make significant contributions to an understanding of Inuit worldviews at the heart of Inuit well-being. Inuit knowledge, or Inuit Quajimajatuqangit
, is a dynamic and living knowledge system. This fact sheet, by author and educator Shirley Tagalik, defines Inunnguiniq
that is literally translated as “the making of a human being.” The cultural expectation is that every child will become able/enabled/capable so that they can be assured of living a good life.
