Inuit dialects. Kivalliq is the lighter green to the west of Hudson Bay.

Kivalliq, also known as Kivallirmiutut, Caribou Eskimo, or formerly as Keewatin, is a Canadian dialect of the Inuit language spoken along the northwestern shores of Hudson Bay in Nunavut. The governments of Nunavut and the Northwest Territories generally consider it to be a dialect of Inuktitut, due to its location in Nunavut, but linguists generally classify it as a dialect of Inuvialuk.[2][3][4] However, Inuktitut and Inuvialuk form a dialect continuum with few sharp boundaries.
