Ivujivik graphic designer Thomassie Mangiok, of Pirnoma Technologies in Nunavik, has launched a new free app to help promote the Inuit language and traditions in more mainstream culture.

The app, called Inuit unikkausiliurusingit, loosely translates to “how Inuit create their stories.” Users encounter challenges and games along the way such as helping to repair a broken igloo or steer a dog team through ice blocks.

The entire app is illustrated and narrated by Mangiok. The app includes original music by Montreal artist Nicolas Pirti Duplessis and throat singing by Evie Mark.
