we invite you to view Piruqatigiit’s new website!

15 October 2020

The website is now easier to use and was beautifully designed by Katittut. It features illustrations by Atiigo Media and Arviat artist Charlotte Karetak. All parts of the site are available in English and Inuktitut.  We have also included some basic FASD information (under the ‘Learn’ heading) and some videos (more videos to come soon!). This website will link directly to our training courses once they are available (we are getting close!). We see the website as an entry point on the continuum of FASD training and knowledge acquisition for Nunavummiut.   A big thank you to Makigiaqta Inuit Training Corporation for the funding to develop this website and to continue making FASD information more accessible to Nunavummiut. We are so grateful.
