We, White People did a lot of evil things to Inuit civilisation and spirituality and we are now deeply ashamed of it. Please, forgive us. Please, say: "Tauva!"

We, modern day Inuit should also ask for forgiveness to the spirits of Tuniit (Thule culture) on behalf of our forefathers for first colonizing and assimilating them and either wiping them off the face of the earth or exiling them from their Arctic homeland which was rightfully given to them by Nunaliurti (Creator).
