Takuginai (Look Here): This is the premiere Aboriginal language program in North America directed at children. Takuginai is one of IBC's longest running, best known and most loved programs. The series features the likes of "Johnny" the lemming and other locally made puppets and young hosts. Takuginai educates Inuit children with cultural values such as respect for elders, sharing and patience, and having fun in the process. Takuginai also teaches Inuktitut numbers, colours, sizes and syllabics. Takuginai was created for the five to seven year-old age group; however, the show is enjoyed by people of all ages. Older episodes of Takuginai were half-hour programs produced in Iqaluit with segments also provided by our other centres. More recent videos include animation. The newest episodes are 15 minutes and are available at
The Inuit Broadcasting Corporation, established in Canada's territory of Nunavut, has been producing Inuit language video, by, for and about Inuit since 1981. This video is from their collection and has been made available on the Internet for your enjoyment through funding provided by the Government of Canada and the Government of Nunavut.
