By Nunatsiaq News

Each week during Nunatsiaq News’ 50th anniversary this year, we are thumbing through pictures the paper has taken or received over the years.

Information about these photos is sketchy. In a lot of cases, very little is known about them.

That’s why we’re turning to readers to help us identify who is in the photo and tell us what’s happening. If you recognize yourself or someone you know, let us know.

Send an email to editors@nunatsiaq.com or add a comment to the bottom of the slideshow and we’ll add that information to the photo.

Scroll through previous weeks’ collections of file photos in the Nunatsiaq News at 50 special section to see other old pictures and read the updated captions to see how readers have helped shed light on them.

    I’m sure the man building the igloo with only a sweater on, is David Oolooyuk from Rankin Inlet.

    The man in the ‘nurses cap’ is James Eetoolook.
