WINNER: Stephanie Nakoolak
Marguerite Nakoolak from Coral Harbour, Nu. June 6, 2020 going to Qamanialuk for the day to go fishing. Super excited and happy. She couldn’t wait for my fiance to finish work as a water truck driver. Before he finished working she said to message him and say “Immiqtaugiaqanngituguguuq aullaqsaaliniaratta!” She was so happy and couldn’t wait to leave town to go jigging. Her first time in so many years because she’s on a wheelchair. She was on the qamutik the whole time jigging over there and caught one little one and lost two.
