Tusaayaksat

Title

Tusaayaksat

Abstract

The word tusaayaksat means "something new to hear about" in Inuvialuktun. This colourful 48-page magazine contains stories about Inuvialuit Nunangat community leaders, politicians, elders and youth as well as information about literacy, program settlements, and workplace training available to Inuit. This publication began as a newspaper, publishing every two weeks by the Committee for Original Peoples' Entitlement and was distributed to 800-odd households in all six Inuvialuit communities. ICS was founded as the Inuit Okangit Inumgun in 1976 and then reorganized in 1984 as the Inuvialuit Communications Society. Tusaayaksat changed to a magazine format in 2004.
