Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics is a script primarily used by indigenous peoples of Canada, including the Cree, Ojibwe, and Inuit, to write their respective languages. Originating in the 19th century by English missionary James Evans, it’s a unique writing system structured around representing syllables. It is utilized across several regions, notably in Manitoba and Nunavut. Modern operating systems and software, including Unicode, offer support for the script, allowing for digital preservation and use.
