1. Sannginik/ ᓴᙱᓂᒃ- strength
2. Sanngijuk/ ᓴᙱᔪᒃ- (he/she) is strong
3. Suunngusaqpuq/ ᓲᙳᓴᖅᐳᖅ - exercise to be physically strong
4. Sujuq/ ᓱᔪᖅ - physically and morally strong. - 2017 has been a real year of growth for me personally and socially. I’ve been fortunate enough to have a strong set of female role models, family members and friends. So many that I couldn’t fit everyone in this photoset. You can learn a lot from everybody you meet; I think the purpose of friendship is to learn from one another and hopefully grow. Sometimes you grow in different directions, but what somebody has taught you will always be a part of you. Through good times and bad times, accomplishments and failures, I’ve had these women to motivate me, guide me, and encourage me. I know that not everybody has the privilege that I do, which is why it is amazing to see so many strong women share their trials and tribulations on social media for those of us who did not have such positive influences in our lives and need guidance here and there. Forever grateful for each of you and all the amazing things you do! Nalligivagit 💕. (Anânak, anânsiak, my aunts, my best friends, my coach, my best strong pals). .

Kungak/ᑯᖓᒃ - smile.
One morning, I went to grab a coffee before getting on the road. The line was long, I stood inside waiting, surrounded by a hoard of men. I was the only female in the establishment except for the employees. I stood silently, and a man said “Smile. You look prettier when you smile.” The insides of my stomach began to churn. I felt nauseous. I was in my sweat pants, aren’t advances from men silenced by sweat pants? I stood still. He came closer to me and brushed hair away from my neck to see my tattoo. I flinched. I didn’t say he could touch me. “Did it hurt?” He asked, regarding my tattoo. “No.” I said. He turned around to the other men, some of them were his friends. “Not easy to find a woman like this!” He said “Tough as nails, a looker, and keeps her mouth shut.” At this point, I was close enough to the line not to leave the coffee shop. The man turned around and asked me what I was going to order. Scared, I said “black coffee.” He got to the cash and said “...and whatever this beautiful lady is having”. I was supposed to think this was a nice gesture, right? I got my coffee and he said “you got your coffee, now I get a minute of your time”. An employee looked at me with wide eyes that I mirrored. She distracted him by saying he missed something in his order long enough for me to leave. Sadly this is minor in comparison to experiences I have had with men. But I’m mentioning this because I have the PRIVILEGE to speak about this feeling in my gut that SO many women have. I have the privilege not to be bought by a man. There are women in this world who are bought and sold, and those with privilege must speak up. #donttellmetosmile #speakout #inuktitut #learninginuktitut #mystory #womenempowerment #inuk #bestronger #privilege @williamflynnphotography

If you’re an English speaker trying to learn Inuktitut, there are three names you need to know... Mick Mallon, Alex Spalding and Louis-Jacques Dorais. These three men have done incredible work documenting, preserving and explaining Inuktitut grammar (respect to Jean Briggs & Kenn Harper also). Today let’s talk about some important works by the anthropologist Louis-Jacques Dorais.

Tukilik: An Inuktitut Grammar for All
Tukilik was produced in 1988 and it is one of the most comprehensive Inuktitut grammar books available. It contains logical explanations of the mechanics of the language... including complete tables of all transitive endings, becausitives, conditionals (if), dubitatives (-mangaat etc.), commands, participles (two things happening at the same time) and locative pronouns. These are the basic concepts you must understand to communicate in Inuktitut. Although it is produced in the Nunavik dialect, it still has lots of value for those learning in the Qikiqtaaluk region. Nunavik dialect is readily understandable to most Canadian Eastern Arctic speakers.
1000 Inuit Uqausingit
1000 Inuit words is a multi-dialect dictionary that was produced in 1990. Unlike a traditional dictionary, words are grouped together by meaning and not alphabetical order. It contains the words in English, French and 14 Inuit dialects from NWT, Nunavut, Nunavik and Greenland... making it an essential Inuktitut learning resource.
In addition to these works, Louis-Jacques Dorais has written grammar books for those desiring to learn Iglulingmiutitut, Aivilingmiutitut, Kinngarmiutitut and Iqalungmiutitut just to name a few. Most of his work is still available for order from the University of Laval’s Aboriginal Studies program. Send us your email if you’d like a list of the text books available and information on how to order.

AkKutik - road.
I find it interesting how most roads have become like a patchwork quilt. There isn’t enough money to repair the whole thing, so you find scraps of material to fix it temporarily. I think that can be applied to a lot of things in life, honestly. .

Kanuinniangilatit / ᑲᓄᐃᓐᓂᐊᖏᓚᑎᑦ - you will be alright. [📸: @tinyghosttim ]. This is something I keep repeating over and over to myself when things get tough. I’ve had a lot of hiccups in life lately, but I’m proud of how I’ve handled them. Previously, one small thing would go wrong and I would break down and cry. I know now that crying about something won’t resolve the problem. Being upset about something is fine, but I’ve learned to get things done first and then if I’m still upset later I can have my moment to feel it. .

SiKinik / ᓯᑭᓂᒃ - sun.
A little perspective; when everything in my life feels inescapable, I think about how most plants continue to grow towards the sun. Some of them are knotted and twisted, others have a clearer path. But both know that they need to keep going in order to survive. Everybody in life has a different path. Some reach their goals with less obstacles than others. .
