Oddly, its based on the Cree syllybary, which might be funny
since last I heard the word "Eskimo" comes from is a less than
flattering word in the Cree language. The writing system was
created in the 19th century I remember..
Seen some examples of it here in Alaska, but not many. Most go
with Roman letters, with additions for language specific
Such as Q for a hard K..
Not sure how much cross language/dialect the words and letters
are.. I was once working on adapting Tengwar from Tolkien or
Cirth, for Inupiaq or Yupik.

I haven't really been to the north...inuit has an interesting
similar to hiragana, but perhaps a bit simpler.
