Iqaluit, NU

Premier Peter Taptuna today released the following statement:

“I am honoured that Their Royal Highnesses, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, will visit Nunavut in late June.

Our territory is a place of vast beauty and great opportunity; one guided by the principles of Inuit societal values and Inuktut, the language of our people and the first official indigenous language recognized by Parliament.

I look forward to showcasing Nunavut’s culture, language and traditions under the midnight sun, and for Their Royal Highnesses to meet Nunavut Inuit and witness our strength and innovation firsthand.”
