As an Inuit owned and operated company, we embrace our culture’s language, values and priorities as the core of our business. We are guided by the knowledge of Inuinnait Elders and Inuit Qaujimajaqtuqangit (Inuit traditional knowledge) as touchstones for how we engage with our clients, our partners, and environment. In translating these teachings into modern business, we forefront the values of:
Aajiiqatigiinniq: Decision making through discussion and consensus.
Avatittinnik Kamatsiarniq: Respect and care for the land, animals, and the environment.
Pilimmaksarniq/Pijariuqsarniq: Development of skills through observation, mentoring, practice and effort
Piliriqatigiiniq/Ikajuqtigiinniq: Working together for a common cause
At Kaapittiaq, it is not 'business as usual.' From the coffee beans we source, to the stores we sell it through, we strive to strengthen an Indigenous business network that supports Indigenous peoples, economies, and communities around the world.
