United Voice of the Arctic
Donate to ICC
ICC is the body that represents all Inuit from Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Chukotka on matters of international importance.
Volunteers & Contributors
ICC was founded in 1977 when Inupiaq Eben Hopson invited to Barrow, Alaska numerous other Inuit to discuss ways in which a common response could be developed to address increasing attacks on the Inuit way of life, environment, and human rights that were initiated by industry, states, and others with interests in the Arctic.
This week the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Sub-Committee on Pollution Prevention and Response (PPR) is meeting in London, UK. Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) Canada Vice-President (International) Lisa Koperqualuk is attending the meetings to bring the Inuit voice on Arctic shipping including the need for cleaner, safer fuels to the international community.
On this day the Inuit Circumpolar Council honours and commemorates International Mother Language Day. It is a day to promote the preservation and protection of all languages.
