Telling The Inuit Story

Nunavut Sivuniksavut presented “The Inuit Story: A Dramatization” at Ottawa’s Arts Court Theatre on March 5 and 6. The play helped students raise funds for their end-of-year cultural exchange trip. In two hours, students told the story of the Inuit’s role in Canadian (and pre-Canadian) history, from pre-contact to modern efforts in revitalization. The multi-media show featured live acting, music performances, video and slideshows, and was presented in English and Inuktitut. At the end of their March 6 matinee performance, the students paid special tribute to Peter Ittinuar, the first Inuk member of Parliament, who was in the audience. (Photo by Kahlan Miron)
