Advancing self-determination
for Arnait

Amautiit’s Vision

Amautiit Nunavut Inuit Women’s Association is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing self-determination for Nunavut Arnait [Inuit women] in all areas of life.

The Inuktitut word that best captures Amautiit’s vision is inunnguijuq, which refers to capable and well-adjusted individuals. The word inunnguijuq incorporates the concept of nurturing and guidance provided by parents and others. This comprehensive support, which begins in pregnancy, fosters the strength, confidence, resilience, enrichment and empowerment needed for people to realize their rightful place in families and communities.

Amautiit will base its efforts to improve conditions for Arnait and their families in Nunavut in thoughtful research and analysis. The organization will build alliances and partnerships with like-minded agents-for-change within and outside of Nunavut, as one of its strategies to support and advocate for the rights and needs of Arnait and their families.

Amautiit’s Board of Directors are Madeleine Redfern (President), Tara Tootoo-Fotheringham (Vice President), Priscilla Kusuk, Dorothy Tootoo, Ningeolaa Killiktee, Megan Porter, and Jasmine Redfern.

Amautiit receives financial support from the Government of Canada via the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC).

Brilliant critical analysis on misogyny @Alisonmau “What would need to change is for men in positions of power to accept that women can surpass them without having wronged them.” Shame on our misogyny: It’s no wonder Jacinda Ardern was driven from office https://t.co/MAHpwolWTB

I’ve always looked up to @jacindaardern and her style of leadership throughout her 5.5 years as PM. As the world’s youngest female leader when she first took office, she has shown young women across the world a that leadership doesn’t need to look or act a certain way.
