Can anyone translate these Inuit Words?Inuit

Please help! We have finalised which objects to display alongside my illustrations for the forthcoming exhibition next February at the museum. All except for this last item – a handbag beautifully embroidered with beads into Inuit words. Both I and the museum team do not know what it reads – can you read Inuktittut (the Inuit language of Baffin Island)?

Please get in touch if you know or know where I should ask?

Thank you all.

    Could it mean “Thank you”?

      We found evidence that it may have been used as a teacher’s bag and a rough translation of the word ‘Teacher’ is the Inuit word embroidered.
