The Moravian beginnings of Canadian Inuit literature: an exhibition of special collections form McGill University Library Rare Books and Special Collections / Henrik Wilhjelm, Greg Colley.

Title: The Moravian beginnings of Canadian Inuit literature: an exhibition of special collections form McGill University Library Rare Books and Special Collections / Henrik Wilhjelm, Greg Colley.
Author(s): Wilhjelm, Henrik.
Colley, Greg.
Date: [2009]
Publisher: Montreal: International Polar Institute
Abstract: Catalogue of exhibition tracing the beginnings of literacy and literature for Inuit living in Labrador and, more widely, in Canadian eastern Arctic. Notes that Moravian missionaries transcribed biblical texts into written form on Inuktitut and were first in Canada to write and publish Inuktitut using Latin characters. Moravian biblical translations were later transcribed into syllabic orthography. Inuit living in Labrador in 19th and 20th centuries were more literate than white settlers as direct result of Moravian missionaries who taught Inuktitut in mission schools.
