Inuttitut Radio Show
Time: 3-4 pm on OKâlaKatiget
The Torngâsok Cultural Centre has been working with the Asiujittailillugit UKausivut (Preserving our Language) Strategy Committee to develop an “Inuttitut Hour” program in partnership with the OKâlaKatiget Society. A contest to name the program was announced in December of 2012. Toby Kojak of Nain was the winner with the name “IlinniaKatigennik” (Learning Together).
The majority of the program is in Inuttitut, but the language lessons are a combination of English and Inuttitut.
