VIDEO DOCUMENTARY: Losing their Words
In this documentary, Radio Canada International journalist Eilís Quinn follws the unique linguistic journey of an aspiring MC from Nunavut.
She also interviews Canadian, Alaskan and Greenland Inuit from the world of hip-hop, theatre, film, literature and linguistics, finding unique perspectives on the future of the Inuit language. She examines the truths, divisions and controversy behind this highly complex issue. Some think standardizing the Inuit language is the solution, others worry standardization will erode regional Inuit cultures and kill off local Inuit dialects for good.
Does Greenland hold the answer?
