Maps of Inuit Nunangat (Inuit Regions of Canada)

At the June 10, 2009 Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami Annual General Meeting in Nain, Nunatsiavut, the Board of Directors adopted a change in terminology from "Inuit Nunaat" to "Inuit Nunangat".

“Inuit Nunaat” is a Greenlandic term that describes land but does not include water or ice. The term “Inuit Nunangat” is a Canadian Inuktitut term that includes land, water, and ice. As Canadian Inuit consider the land, water, and ice, of our homeland to be integral to our culture and our way of life it was felt that “Inuit Nunangat” is a more inclusive and appropriate term to use when describing our lands.
