Inuktitut - Nunavut 99


Feel the excitement, the emotion and the pride of Nunavut's birth all over again with this online version of Nunavut '99.

Nunavut '99 — co-published by Nortext Multimedia Incorporated and Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated — was distributed throughout the North and beyond as a celebration of the creation of the Nunavut territory on April 1, 1999.

In beautiful photos and text penned by some of Nunavut's best writers, the struggle to achieve a land claim agreement and territory, the workings of the new Nunavut government, the soul of Inuit culture, and the challenges ahead for Nunavummiut are all revealed.

The authoritative story of Nunavut begins here.
