Using a mixture of fictional puppet stories, documentary segments and animated graphics, Takuginai will teach Inuktitut numbers and syllabics. Although created for children, Takuginai is enjoyed by people of all ages. Multiple generations of Inuit often gather to watch the show. Takuginai Web Series can be viewed on
