Example of word with Iñupiaq font
Ixisabviat

Iñupiat Ioitqusiat is not a program; it is a way of life, which we have defined as ours. What have been defined as "Iñupiat Values," upon closer inspection, are really basic human values. It is what makes us different from other people; not more than someone else and not less than someone else, just different.

Cover

University of Alaska Anchorage student Christine Ahlalook submitted the cover photo of her sister, Della, playing on the tundra.

The cover definition of the Ilitqusiat program was taken from an interview conducted by Kiana High School students.

"Those things that make us who we are," is a translation of Ilitqusiat by Reggie Joule, taken from the same interview.

The Inupiat Ilitqusiat program translates the word as "Inner spirit in our heart."
