To write the language used is either the Canadian Aboriginal letter or the Latin alphabet.


Inuvialuktun are three dialects of the language of the Inuit spoken in the northern Northwest Territories by those Canadian Inuit who call themselves Inuvialuit .Inuvialuktun is an official language of the Northwest Territories and is written using the Roman alphabet, like all NWT official languages, and has no tradition of Inuktitut syllabics. However, the official understanding of Inuvialuktun is somewhat at variance to the way linguists understand it. Rather than a single dialect, Inuvialuktun is a politically motivated grouping of three quite distinct and separate dialects
