With the commitments of supporting the revitalization of Inuktut, Qilaut was created to celebrate Nunavut’s vibrant Inuktut music scene and promotion of Inuktut in daily life. Qilaut, Nunavut’s annual Inuktut songwriting contest was first launched in 2013. The name Qilaut, which means drum, was chosen to honour traditional and contemporary Inuktut music. By singing in Inuktut, Nunavummiut are contributing to the vibrancy and strength of the Inuit culture and language. The presentation will discuss the importance of the program in strengthening and enhancing the use of Inuktut in Nunavut, through arts, educational materials and music
