Inuit Women's Association

Welcoming women of Nunavik to our organization

Saturviit Inuit Women’s Association of Nunavik is a non profit organization whose mandate is to advocate for Inuit women and children and support positive and healthy communities.

What does Saturviit mean?

For those who do not know the meaning of Saturviit, the root word, “satuq”, means “regaining what one had lost”. Saturviit is in the plural and thus signifies “those who regain what was lost” symbolizing hope of a return of those aspects of our culture that we may think lost, a return of the Inuit way of doing things and pride in Inuit identity.
