Inupiaq Values


Every Inupiaq is responsible to
all other Inupiat for the survival
of our cultural spirit, and the
values and traditions through
which it survives. Through our
extended family, we retain,
teach and live our Inupiaq way.
  • With guidance and
    support for Elders, we
    must teach our children
    Inupiaq values:
  • Knowledge of Language
  • Knowledge of Family
  • Sharing
  • Humility
  • Respect for Children
  • Cooperation
  • Hard Work
  • Respect for Elders
  • Respect for Nature
  • Avoid Conflict
  • Family Roles
  • Humor
  • Spirituality
  • Domestic Skills
  • Hunter Success
  • Responsibility to Tribe

Our understanding of our
universe and our place in it is a
belief in God and a respect for
all His creation.
