This issue provides a perspective usually reserved for the most skilled of Inuit hunters. Join Arctic Bay photographer Niore Iqalukjuak and a group of Igloolik Inuit in a traditional walrus hunt that ultimately ends with a hearty supply of igunaq – fermented walrus meat.
Also in these pages, we learn the stories of two Inuit journalists at different points in their careers. Alec Gordon recounts the 30 years he’s spent with CBC’s Tuttavik in Kujjuaq, while Labrador Inuk Ossie Michelin discusses what it takes to work in today’s multimedia environment.
Persis Gruben recounts a story originally shared on the airwaves of “Tuk Radio” about a close call with a polar bear on Banks Island as a child at the end of the 1920s.
We also invite ITK President Natan Obed to discuss the creation of the Inuit-Crown Partnership Committee and what it means for Inuit and our relationship with the federal government.
