Happenings around Nunavut

Amoudla Kootoo, 24, of Iqaluit is hoping to be named Miss Nunavut when she heads to Toronto in August to compete at the Miss Canada Globe pageant. So far, five Nunavummiut are expected to compete at the event. Pageant seeks Miss Nunavut
NUNAVUT NEWS NORTH - It has been almost four years since Malaya Qaunirq-Chapman was named Miss Nunavut, and she's ready to see someone else take the title. If Amoudla Kootoo gets her way, she'll be the one. "I'm just really excited to show the younger population that women can use these kinds of things to promote what we feel needs awareness," said Kootoo, who will compete against several other Nunavummiut for the title at the Miss Canada Globe competition in Toronto in August.

Nunavut Environment Minister Johnny Mike and CanNor Minister Leona Aglukkaq announce increased funding for Nunavut fisheries research Jan. 12 in Iqaluit. Millions for fishing industry
NUNAVUT NEWS NORTH - Nunavut's fisheries sector employs 370 people across the territory, bringing in $86 million in 2013/14, but governments and fisheries associations are hoping a $7.2 million joint funding increase will increase the opportunities available to Nunavut fishers. "This is good for our communities, it's creating jobs in our communities," said CanNor Minister Leona Aglukkaq, announcing the agency's portion, which is $4.3 million, in Iqaluit Jan. 12.

Sasha Fathoullin, seen during the Canadian Short Track Team Trials last September, is once again the Canadian Junior Men's Short Track Champion and will compete for Canada at the World Junior Short Track Championships in Osaka, Japan, beginning Feb. 27.

Taking on the world again
NUNAVUT NEWS NORTH - The winner and still Canadian Junior Men's Short Track Champion: Sasha Fathoullin, formerly of Iqaluit. The 19-year-old, who now lives and trains in Montreal, successfully defended the title he won one year ago by finishing first overall at the Canadian Junior Short Track Championships in Trois-Rivieres, Que., on Jan. 11. Fathoullin scored a total of 38,000 points out of a possible 40,000, which translates into three wins and a second place finish.

Beneath Floes follows Qalupalik, shown here, an Inuit mythical creature who steals misbehaving children.

Inuit myth turned video game
NUNAVUT NEWS NORTH - It is dark and ominous as grey clouds roll in and the moon overhead is blood red. Beneath Floes, a free online video game about Inuit mythical creature Qalupalik, is quick to set a nightmarish scene. "Fifty years ago, only a child, you wandered the shoreline in the dark season, as your mother had warned you never to," the game's narrator says.
