Iqaluit’s Toonik Tyme kicks off

Let the fun begin! Iqaluit’s spring festival officially opened Thursday evening with the naming of the festival’s two honorary Tooniks: Rebecca Veevee, the host of the popular APTN cooking show Niqitsiat, and Lew Phillip, a former RCMP officer and longtime carver. The evening also included a fashion show, featuring clothing made by participants in a Nunavut Literacy Council program, throat-singing and music. Festival events get underway on Friday, a civic holiday in Iqaluit, with more information available at (Photo by Jane George)
