February 2010: Inuktitut used for the first time in Hockey Night in Canada

Friday, February 05, 2010

There are a few articles out here on this, but there doesn't seem to be any material online showing the game where Inuktitut was also used for commentary on the game (between the Canadiens and Senators). Here's one, and another one here by a guy in Inuvik has a small example of Inuktitut used for hockey. I think I'll leave a comment on his blog to see if he knows where to find the recent game so many articles are talking about.

While Inuktitut is still the mother tongue of 70% of the population of Nunavut, Inuktitut as a written language is still largely symbolic as not as much attention is being paid to the written language as there should be.
