Greetings from Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami

Terry Audla from Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami is introduced by Henriette Thompson, public witness coordinator for social justice (ACC). ITK is the national voice of 55,000 Inuit living in 53 communities across the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (Northwest Territories), Nunavut, Nunavik (Northern Quebec), and Nunatsiavut (Northern Labrador).

Reflecting on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission process, Mr. Audla discusses the evolving process of reconciliation, in which broader matters of language, education, environmental care, resource development, land claims and economic development need to be owned by Inuit. Mr Audla commends Inuit church leaders, bishops, clergy, and translators.
