Join us for this discussion about the importance of having Nattilingmiutut in The Breathing Hole and what it took to make that happen. Kevin Loring (Artistic Director for Indigenous Theatre) is joined by The Breathing Hole actors Miali Buscemi and Salik Lenner for this conversation.
Nattilingmiutut is an Inuktut dialect spoken in Gjoa Haven, where the story of The Breathing Hole is set. The translation of The Breathing Hole into Nattilingmiutut is the largest piece of text in the language and has become an important teaching tool for the language’s preservation in community.
