QIA gives away country food in Iqaluit

Iqaluit residents line up to receive country food on Friday, Oct. 9, distributed by the Qikiqtani Inuit Association to mark its annual general meeting. Usually the Inuit organization hosts a community feast, but that was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. QIA gave away six caribou, 300 pounds of maktaaq, 100 pounds of char, three seals and bannock. The food was gone in 12 minutes. QIA’s annual meeting ran over schedule and didn’t end up dealing with everything on the agenda. A spokesperson said they still have the social policy items to complete, which they may return to at the end of the month via video conference. (Photo by Mike Salomonie for the QIA)
