Nilliajut Project Explores Inuit Perspectives on Security, Patriotism and Sovereignty | Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami - Canada's National Inuit Organization

National Inuit Leader Terry Audla, President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), released a compendium of Inuit ideas and attitudes towards Arctic security and sovereignty today during the Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program’s third annual conference, “Arctic Peoples and Security.”

Nilliajut (to speak up, speak out) is the title of a film and companion text produced by Inuit Qaujisarvingat: The Inuit Knowledge Centre (IQ) in collaboration with the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation and the Canada Center for Global Security Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.

The project explores the multifaceted views of security, patriotism and sovereignty in the Arctic through the eyes of established and emerging Inuit leaders and thinkers, including Pujjuut Kusugak of Rankin Inlet, Myrna Pokiak of Tuktoyaktuk, and Rosemarie Kuptana of Sachs Harbour, who participated in a panel discussion during the conference.

“Inuit have played our part in asserting the sovereign rights of Canada in the Arctic,” said Audla, who appears in the film and contributed a manuscript to the collection of papers. “These rights are founded on the bedrock of Inuit use and occupation of Arctic lands and waters.”
