Purvirnituq 2007

We did this workshop immediately after the Inukjuaq one so we were a little worried about keeping our energy levels high for the youth. We didn’t have to worry -the youth of PUV gave us the energy we needed. Lots of great art surrounding the gym walls and amazing teacher and Elder support. One of Nunavik’s famous throat singers ” Akinisie Sivuaraapik” is from here and we even got to meet her grandmother who taught her. We also had to end the workshop early one day as the community had hunters coming back with Beluga Whales which they had not seen for a few years. Lots of excitement on the beach as we tried our first Beluga. Another great week sponsored by the Kativik School Board. (KSB)
