Happenings around Nunavut

Former Nunavut premier Eva Aariak, left, Rassi Nashalik, who helped with Inuktitut voiceovers of English audio for the residential school module, and Inuk elder Peter Irniq light a qulliq to launch the new curriculum in Yellowknife in October 2012. All three were involved in the development of the ground-breaking programming for Grade 10 students.

Education leads to reconciliation
NUNAVUT NEWS/NORTH - Since 2012, Grade 10 students in the territory are ahead of the national curve in learning about the impact of residential schools, making Nunavut a leader in Canada when it comes to residential school curriculum – although an expert says there's still a long way to go on the path to reconciliation. Territorial educators held pride of place at a recent National Education Roundatable held in Winnipeg Jan. 13 and 14.

Muskoxen are a common occurrence around Grise Fiord. They are usually no threat to humans but it is a justified precaution to turn and run in the other direction when coming across one up close in the dark.

Trip to cabin turns into an adventure
NUNAVUT NEWS/NORTH - A recent trip with some family and friends to a nearby cabin got a little more exciting than Jimmy Qaapik and company were expecting. He and a group were travelling in two trucks to a cabin at Nunaviniq, also known as "Old Village," about 10 km west of Grise Fiord last week.

A historic week for Nunavut
NUNAVUT NEWS/NORTH - It wasn't a case of if but more of a question of when Nunavut would capture a game at the Canadian Junior Curling Championships. For the record, that date was Jan. 26, 2016. That was the day Sadie Pinksen, Christianne West, Kaitlin MacDonald and Melicia Elizaga of the Iqaluit Curling Club became the answer to a trivia question forever after defeating the NWT by a score of 7-3 in the seeding round of this year's bonspiel in Stratford, Ont.

Cape Dorset artist Tim Pitsiulak's Bow Head Whale image is on display in Victoria, B.C., this month for an exhibit at Madrona Gallery. Titled Pulp and Process, the exhibit displays contemporary work on paper by Canadian artists.

Northern artists mesh with south
NUNAVUT NEWS/NORTH - With a mixture of vibrant abstract works and simplistic depictions of Inuit life, Victoria B.C.'s Madrona Gallery is mixing the contemporary art of both Northern and southern artists. The West Coast gallery is exhibiting Pulp and Process Feb. 11 to 25, which combines work from artists across Canada including art created by Cape Dorset's Shuvinai Ashoona, Ningeokuluk Teevee and Tim Pitsiulak, along with pieces by B.C.'s Meghan Hildebrand and Luke Ramsey and the Yukon's David Antonides.
