Kanadana is a method of writing Japanese using Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics devised by Simon Ager, creator of Omniglot. It was inspired by seeing the signatures of Inuit artists written vertically in a Japanese style.
The name Kanadana combines the Japanese words 仮名 (かな kana), as in hiragana and katakana, the Japanese syllabaries, and カナダ (kanada), the Japanese for Canada.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
