Northwest Arctic Borough Iñupiaq Language Survey
The North Slope Borough Mayor’s Iñupiaq Language Task Force conducted a North Slope wide socio-linguistic survey of the Iñupiaq language in 2018. This 2020 survey has been adapted to serve the needs of communities in the Northwest Arctic Borough, with support from the NANA Iñupiaq Language Commission and Aqqaluk Trust. This survey will assist in the revitalization efforts of the Iñupiaq language through open discussion and a questionnaire.
