“My wish and dream for Inuinnaqtun is for it to be spoken by all, elders, parents, youth and children alike,” she said. “That communication and dialogues between them are all in Inuinnaqtun as it was in my childhood. That one-day, we may have an Inuinnaqtun language and culture school within our region. In order for this to happen we all need to commit to using it daily in all aspects of life.” - Rosemarie Avrana Meyok
