We are guided by the knowledge of our Elders and we celebrate Inuit culture.


At Ittaq we use our research and multimedia skills to preserve, promote, strengthen and celebrate Inuit knowledge and culture.

We are proud of our language and our Inuit values and we strengthen these in our community through cultural and heritage activities.
