Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland) - Nunavut - Nunavik


Inuit

The Inuit are the native inhabitants of the northermost part of the Americas. Their territory ranges from Siberia to Greenland through Alaska and Canada. Their language is divided in distinct languages or dialects, but has some unity. It is called Yupik in South and Central Alaska, Inupiaq in North Alaska, and Inuktitut in Canada and Greenland. The Inuit have some autonomy now in Greenland (Kalaallit Nunaat) and will also be a self-governed territory soon in Canada in Nunavut (their homeland, covering part of the Northwest Territories).

Canada

Six Inuit dialects are spoken in Canada and there are about 22.000 speakers. Names listed here are mostly from Nunavut (covers part of Northwest Territories) and Quebec. Nunavut will become autonomous soon on 1 April 1999, with capital in Iqaluit (formerly Frobisher Bay) in Baffin island. Inuit placenames are re-gaining officiality in several areas in Canada, mainly in Nunavut and the northern part of Labrador peninsula (divided between Quebec and Newfoundland), called Nunavik by the Inuit. Anyway, lots of colonnial names remain. The Inuit of Nunavik, Labrador, live alongside the Innu people, which are a totally distinct ethnic group.

 

 

 

Nunavut, Nunavik...

Kanada: sei dialekto Inuit, eta guztira 22.000 hiztun. Zerrenda hauetan Nunavut eskualdeko eta Quebeceko izenak ageri dira batik bat. Nunavut laster autonomoa, ia independentea, izango da (mapetako Northwest Territories eskualdeko parte handi bat hartuko du) eta hiriburua Iqaluit (lehen Frobisher Bay) izango du, Baffin uhartean, 1999ko apirilaren 1ean.Inuit izenak ofizialtasuna berreskuratzen ari dira, batez ere Nunavut eskualdean eta Labrador penintsularen iparraldean (Nunavik, haientzat), Quebec eta Ternua artean. Beste izen kolonialista askok dirau, dena den. Nunavik (Labrador) eskualdeko Inuit herria Innu indiarren ondoan bizi dira, eta ez dira etnia biak nahastu behar.
