Introduction

If you are Canadian, you are probably already familiar with many peoples that live on its huge territory, but if not, you might be surprised to learn that not only Canadians inhabit the cold lands up north. No, before Canadians that we know today, Inuits and Native Canadians were the only people there. The Inuit are a group of indigenous people from the Arctic regions of Canada, Alaska, and Greenland. Their language is in the Eskimo-Aleut family, and they mostly live in Northern Canada, in Nunavut, Nunavik in Quebec, Nunatsiavut, and NunatuKavut in Labrador, and other parts of Northwest Territories.

Canadian Inuit Dog Name Considerations

Finding the perfect Canadian Inuit name for your dog can be a bit tricky if you are not familiar with the culture and the community of the Inuit in Canada. However, as it goes in life, everything can be learned, and expanding your horizons and learning about different cultures and peoples can only expand your mind and leave you a better person. So, time to take a deep dive into the Canadian Inuit culture!

When it comes to names, you can pick and choose since there are so many! There are numerous Inuit politicians, leaders, artists, writers, filmmakers, and other notable people that will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. One of such people whose name you can “steal” for your pupper is Caubvick, an Inuk after whom the highest peak in Labrador was named, or Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, a filmmaker who creates movies about the Inuit life. Floyd Kuptana is an Inuk artist who works with stone carvings and has a very sweet name that your doggo can bear from now on as well, or if you are more into politics, you can name them Kiviaq, after an Inuit lawyer, former athlete, and politician.
