Nilliajut (to speak up, speak out) is the title of a film and companion text produced by Inuit Qaujisarvingat: Inuit Knowledge Centre (IQ) at Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) in collaboration with the Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program.

Originally presented at the third annual Munk-Gordon Arctic Security Program conference "Arctic Peoples and Security," the project explores the multifaceted views of security, patriotism and sovereignty in the Arctic through the eyes of established and emerging Inuit leaders and thinkers. It features prominent Inuk, including Pujjuut Kusugak of Rankin Inlet, Myrna Pokiak of Tuktoyaktuk, and Rosemarie Kuptana of Sachs Harbour, who participated in a panel discussion during the conference.
