Deep in the southern hemisphere, a qulliq is lit

Gerri Sharpe, president of Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada, is seen here lighting a qulliq at New Zealand’s parliament in Wellington, the nation’s capital. Sharpe, along with federal Indigenous Services Minister Patty Hajdu, is part of a delegation of Canadian Indigenous leaders to the southern Pacific island nation to build relationships with Māori and government leaders. Both countries are working on an arrangement to promote socioeconomic development of Indigenous Peoples and communities, an emailed statement from Pauktuutit said.

    If indigenous peoples in Canada want economic development they don’t need to create a parallel market with a tiny community on the other side of the globe, they live amidst the largest economies in the world. This kind of symbolic non-sense, hatched and promoted by people with no economic or business background is a clinic in time and energy wasted.
