Quite the feast

The staff at Nunatsiaq News would like to wish our readers a happy Canada Day. To help put you in a festive mood, here’s a photo of Kuujjuaq residents enjoying a feast of country food on Monday, June 22. The offerings included beluga amirruk (flippers) and maktak (skin and blubber), as well as seal meat that Markusi Qisiiq and his son Elijah caught the previous day. There was also beluga nikkuk (dried meat) given by Elijah Grey from Kangirsuk and fresh mussels picked the day before. Our offices will be shut on Wednesday, July 1. We’ll resume publishing on Thursday, July 2. (Photo by Isabelle Dubois)
