April 19, 2017
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.”
