Cambridge Bay hosts drum dance gathering

Drum dancers from around Nunavut’s Kitikmeot and Kivalliq regions, including Julia Ogina, seen here, will perform in Cambridge Bay tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Kullik Elementary School. Other nightly performances are also planned later in the week. During the day the drum dancers plan to meet and record their songs, for a follow-up to 2018’s Huqqullaarutit Unipkaangit or “Stories Told Through Drum-Dance Songs,” a book prepared for the Kitikmeot Inuit Association, which Ogina co-ordinated.
