About UsThe Parks & Special Places division of the Government of Nunavut is working with Nunavummiut to identify and protect significant areas as territorial parks and special places, understanding that they mean many things to many people: they are places of escape, places for reflection, places of power, and places that celebrate our cultural and natural heritage.
Katjaqnaaq, as much a feeling as an expression, reveals a depth of emotion and connection to a place of incredible beauty and significance. Uttered as a sigh, it can mean "ah - I am happy here, I am part of something." As a joyful exclamation, it can mean "oh, what a beautiful place!" However it is used, it evokes connectedness to one's surroundings and a sense of peace and meaning.
