Inuktitut

Inuktitut is spoken in Canada by about 35,000 Inuit people. It’s spoken on the Yukon coast off the Arctic Ocean; in northeastern Manitoba and the Nunavut region in the Northwest Territories; and in Quebec, Labrador, and Newfoundland. Recognized as an official language in Nunavut and in the Northwest Territories, it’s also recognized as an official language for Inuit schools in Nunavik, which is part of Quebec. In addition, it’s attained some recognition in Nunatsiavut, a section of Labrador. Inuktitut is part of the Inuit language, which belongs to the Eskimo-Aleut language family. Dialect, region, and history has shaped the written language. In the 1760s in Greenland, Moravian missionaries taught Roman orthography to the Inuit people to introduce them to Christianity and the teachings of the Bible and this created the Inuktitut writing system. Then in the 1800s, Moravian missionaries took this Inuktitut writing with them to convert the Inuit people in Labrador. However, during this period, other missionaries developed a writing system called Qaniujaaqpait which they used to convert the Cree tribe and they taught the Eastern Canadian Inuit this form. Meanwhile, the Inupiat and the Yupik in Alaska developed their own hieroglyphics. Thus today, the Inuktitut writing system differs from one region to another.
