Fifteen snowmobile or ATV engines, like the one in this picture, were patched up last week in Rankin Inlet for free by Arctic Co-operatives Ltd. trainees from across Nunavut. From left: Jimmy Evalik, Scott Kadlutsiak, Silas Etuk and Sandy Kaunak were four of eight participants for the co-op’s small engine repair workshop. Its last workshop like this was in 2018, also held in Rankin Inlet, but was led by technicians from the south. This year, Jamie Nakashuk and Jackie Nowdluk from Pangnirtung led the group and helped form the first all-Inuit workshop put on by the co-op, said training co-ordinator Sherry Smadella.

    Awesome to see stories like this. Hope more of these kinds of programs happen and get recognized as well. Show that it can be done and even more will happen in other places.
