Natan Obed, president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, an organization representing 60,000 Inuit in Canada, is concerned the proposed Indigenous Languages Act could end up being symbolic. If this is the case, the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami will not support it. The bill is a key component of the Trudeau government’s plan to revitalize Indigenous languages, and it has already been delayed.
