After 34 painstaking years, a small band of Inuit translators have finally delivered an Inuktitut-language Bible to one of the most-Christian regions in Canada.
The completed Inuit-language bible, a $1.7 million joint project of the the Canadian Bible Society and the Anglican Church, is set to be launched on June 3 in a ceremony at the igloo-shaped St. Jude’s Anglican Cathedral in Iqaluit.
“We’re happy to have this out of the way,” said Rev. Canon Jonas Allooloo, who was with the translation team since its 1978 inception. “It’s been 34 years and we can do something else now.”
