See on Scoop.itInuit Nunangat Stories

Thomassie Mangiok’s app, comics and videos reflect a “passion” for his language — Inuttitut.

Nunavik graphic artist Mangiok says he’s on a quest to see Inuit in Nunavik use and keep their Inuit language.

Mangiok, 30, who speaks English, French and Inuttitut, graduated in arts from Montreal’s Collège Marie-Victorin.

Now, he runs his design and computer support company from his home town of Ivujivik on Nunavik’s Hudson Strait coast.

Northern_Clips‘s insight:

So far, Mangiok has produced the “first Nunavik-made” application or app for android telephone and tablet devices in Inuttitut, called “Sunaunaa?”

The free app encourages the user how to properly pronounce words in Inuttitut..  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pirnoma.apps&feature=nav_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDMsImNvbS5waXJub21hLmFwcHMiXQ..
