Some of the 26 participants in the Aug. 10 "Women on the Land" berry picking excursion show off the fruits of their labours. The day-long trip was organized by the local community health clinic, the Ungava Tulattavik health centre and the Tunngasuvvik Women’s Shelter, which promoted the day as a “great opportunity to share discussions among generations about topics that touch women" and pick the plentiful aqpik or cloudberries now in season. At the centre, in pink, stands Eva Gunn, who won the first prize for the most berries picked, a $60 gift certificate at Kuujjuaq's Newviq'vi store. (PHOTO COURTESY OF D. BELEC)
