COLUMN: Ready to rumble for science

December 13, 2018 - Kivalliq

Call it what you will, but I always find it downright exhilarating to talk with any of the teachers or students at Victor Sammurtok School (VSS) in Chesterfield Inlet about the science fair at their school and, of course, the Kivalliq Regional Science Fair. Read More

EDITORIAL: Resale royalty long overdue for Inuit artists

December 4, 2018

Kenojuak Ashevak continues to bestow Nunavut – and Canada – with the gift of her artistry. Last month’s auction of her famous 1960 stone cut print The Enchanted Owl garnered $180,000 plus fees for a total of $216,000. The sale set a new Canadian record for a print sold at auction. Read More

COLUMN: Performing arts hold plenty of potential

November 30, 2018 - Kivalliq

If you aren’t a Twitter user, you will have missed a comment posted by TootooGoggles, a satirical account based on Liberal MP Hunter Tootoo’s follies. The account was launched soon after the 2015 election and has provided comic relief even after Tootoo was booted from Justin Trudeau’s cabinet. Read More

COLUMN: A dream that could be realized

November 9, 2018 - Kivalliq

Despite what opinions you may, or may not, have about the performance of the Kivalliq Inuit Association (KIA) as a regional Inuit association, the cultural centre described by KIA president David Ningeongan in this edition (‘KIA still plugging for cultural centres’) is the multipurpose facility that dreams are made of to every Kivalliq community – and then some.

COLUMN: What Tootoo accomplished

November 2, 2018 - Kivalliq

Jordin Tootoo’s retirement announcement caught more than a few Nunavummiut off-guard earlier this month – mainly those who were still hoping against hope the rugged winger would somehow end up catching on with another NHL team for one more season in the show. Read More

COLUMN: A criticism of Nutrition North

October 26, 2018 - Kivalliq

To say I wasn’t the least bit surprised to learn that all five major Inuit organizations – Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI), the Inuvialuit Regional Corp., Makivik Corp. and the Nunatsiavut Government – had pulled out of the federal government’s Indigenous Working Group on food security this past April would be a major understatement.
