(Iqaluit, Nunavut, Eastern Canadian Arctic)
Inuktitut, also called Eastern Arctic Inuktitut, is spoken primarily in Nunavut and in Nunavik (northern Quebec) by the Inuit people. It is one of the official languages in the Nunavut territory along with English. The writing system used in Inuktitut is based on the syllabic writing originally developed by James Evans for Cree speakers, which was later adapted and introduced to the Inuit by Edmund Peck.
About This Translation
The whole Bible was completed in 2012, and now CBS is helping the Church revise the 2012 publication. Recent milestones were the creation of a Children’s Bible in Inuktitut, and the decision to move ahead with a recording program once the revision is done. CBS has been involved with the Inuktitut project for more than 25 years, and we aren’t finished yet.
