Pulaarvik centre eyes library reset in Rankin by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Rankin Inlet

A large group of kids gathered at John Ayaruaq Library at Maani Ulujuk Ilinnarvik for a special afternoon highlighted by RCMP officers and volunteer firemen – and their vehicles – on Aug. 8 in Rankin Inlet. The Meet Your Local Heroes initiative was the brainchild of the Pulaarvik Kablu Friendship Centre in Rankin, and its new executive director, Charlene Williams-Kaludjak, who took over the position on June 3. And, if the pure joy on the faces of the kids who attended the event is anything to go by, the initiative was a tremendous success. Williams-Kaludjak said Pulaarvik's entire organization has had staff issues during the past few years. She said the organization has seen a lot of turnover, which really affected community programming. "We have a large number of different agreements with different partners, and one of those is the money we receive from the Government of Nunavut for staffing to keep the John Ayaruaq Library open here in Rankin," said Williams-Kaludjak. "And that's, basically, all we've done for the past year and a bit. "We've had a librarian here to keep the doors open during the publicly-posted hours, but we haven't been doing any programming. "Pulaarvik has the prenatal program, the preschool program, spousal abuse counsellors and mental health workers – which everyone is pretty much aware of – but the library has been super stagnant during the past year and it's time to change that." Williams-Kaludjak said the idea behind Meet Your Local Heroes was to have a big kickoff for the message that Pulaarvik is going to have a lot more library programming available in the near future. She said in the meantime, it was great to have so many kids come out to see all that the library still has to offer, and to have a great time interacting with the RCMP officers and local firefighters. "It was a chance for the kids to meet some of the people who they don't always get a chance to talk to on a one-on-one basis. "The idea was to raise awareness through an event, so I contacted the RCMP, the firefighters and the health centre and they all agreed to come." Williams-Kaludjak said the kids absolutely loved being able to get inside a police vehicle and a fire truck. She said, to be honest, she and her co-workers weren't expecting so people to show up for the event. "Our summer librarian (Tagalik Eccles) bought 20 juice boxes because it was the first time we did anything at the library in a really long time, so we didn't want to go overboard," she said. "We were extremely surprised and overwhelmed by the number of people who came, but very, very happy with the outcome.

The event was held at the John Ayaruaq Library at Maani Ulujuk Ilinnarvik in Rankin Inlet on Aug. 8. "Increasing programming at the library is on my priority list. We're looking at setting a three-month schedule that will have programs being held in the afternoons and evenings." Williams-Kaludjak said Pulaarvik is purchasing craft supplies to do different types of projects and programs moving forward. She said they don't want to keep the same programming all the time, which is why they're looking at the three-month schedules. "We're also looking for seamstresses we can hire so they can start teaching a summer amauti- and snuggly-making program.

"We're also trying to find some carpenters to teach young men how to make meat-drying racks, but we're having a hard time finding them right now because they're all so busy with summer being construction season. "The turnout for Meet Your Local Heroes showed that the kids will come when there's organized activities available, and that was, kind of, our goal. "We wanted to show we're here as a public organization and the library isn't just about books. Our doors are open and everyone is welcome."

"We couldn't keep our adrenaline up that long and we just didn't have anything left for the final game." – Darren Ikakhik on Rankin Inlet falling one game short of its second Calm Air Hudson Bay Classic championship, page 8.

Kivalliq Trade Show turns 10 next month

‘The vast majority of us are volunteers and we work together for the good of the collective' by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Rankin Inlet//Kivalliq

The Kivalliq Trade Show is gearing up for its 10th anniversary edition in Rankin Inlet when it opens on Sept. 23 – and there is a lengthy list of exhibitors. Kivalliq Trade Show Society president Megan Pizzo-Lyall said this year's theme is, A Year of Celebration. She said the trade show will use the new arena opening soon in Rankin and the plan is to pair the show with the art market. "When people enter the arena, they will have to go through the art market to reach the trade show, so they will see what the region has to offer in terms of art, sewing, photography and all that beautiful stuff," said Pizzo-Lyall. "Hopefully, the community hall will be renovated by then so we can host both the meet and greet and the gala dinner in there.

"We always have new society members working together to accomplish the trade show, and we're always building upon new ideas. "We're going to be focused a lot on utilizing the new spaces we'll have access to and increasing the overall number of exhibitors we have this year." Pizzo-Lyall said the promoting of networking and communication is the whole idea behind the trade show. She said there is also a delegation coming to the show from northern Manitoba this year. "The Kivalliq has so much to offer. We've overcome different obstacles for small business start-ups – and the ones growing from small to medium – and we have the opening of the Amaruq property this year, which is huge. "Our partnership with Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM) is not formalized, but we now have a couple of its members with our society and helping specifically with the Kivalliq entrepreneur program. "So, we're beefing up that program and aiming to hit another Kivalliq community with it later this year. "We're hoping to introduce the program to a community some time during the winter, when people are more available." To Pizzo-Lyall, one thing that sets the Kivalliq Trade Show apart from the Nunavut Trade Show and the Kitikmeot Trade Show is its society status. Pizzo-Lyall said it's a group of volunteers behind the Kivalliq Trade Show who, every year, are able to pull off the show. She said the society does have a couple of paid positions for show co-ordinators, who really contribute to its success. "The vast majority of us are volunteers and we work together for the good of the collective to run an amazing show," said Pizzo-Lyall.

Summer fun in Naujaat Older youth assume leadership roles during educational activities by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Arviat

Vacation time became a bit more special for a group of kids who took part in a special Summer Fun program that ran from June 25 to Aug. 2 in Naujaat. The program was organized and overseen by mental health outreach worker Brittany Holm and child abuse outreach worker Lavinia Tanuyak. "There was a lineup of kids waiting in front of the school doors to get in for every single session we held," said Holm. "We did sessions on sports, crafts, nails, hair and baking during the course of the program. "Then, at the end of each day, we'd hold a circle talk and discuss such topics as bullying awareness, vandalism, selfcare, oral health, the use of tobacco and mental health well-being. "We wrapped up the program at the end of the summer with a pizza party followed by a hot breakfast." The program, funded through the mental-health budget, was open to both boys and girls aged five to 19, with Tuesday segments being for girls only,

Wednesday sessions for boys only and Thursday sessions open to both. Holm said there were 47 girls registered for the program, as well as 47 boys, with 28-to-50 kids showing up for any given session. She said the program ran from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., with snacks always being available for the participants. Holm said the kids loved the program and had an absolute blast participating in each session. The program attracted kids with all different types of likes and dislikes and, from what she observed, none of them attended a session and went away without having a good time. "We had a lot of kids attending the Summer Fun program who are nonattenders at their school," she said. "So, that just goes to show you the kids want structured activities and are happy participating in them when they're available. "They also knew the program was a safe place to come and enjoy themselves, which is always an important aspect of any program offered to the youth of a community.

"In fact, throughout the Summer Fun program, a large number of the older youths assumed leadership roles during the various activities to help the younger youths do better, which we were quite pleased to see." Holm said there were a number of times during the program when something unexpected would happen that would put a smile on her and Tanuyak's face. One such time was during a session that morphed from a program activity to a game of the youths' own invention. "There was one time when the kids were participating in a sports session with a basketball and ringette sticks when, all of a sudden, they were pretending to hunt," she recalled. "They were very proud of themselves for coming up with that game all on their own. "It was absolutely amazing to see, and you could easily tell they watched their family members closely when they were out hunting. "It was something they clearly liked doing, and it was quite educational in its delivery, so the kids get an A-plus for an amazing game of their own creation."

Search continues for missing boater in Baker Lake Region steps up to help community with fundraising efforts

Norman Attungala's daughter, Sarah, picks up a copy of Portraits of the Far North from pencil artist Gerald Kuehl on behalf of her father on Nunavut Day in Baker Lake. As of press time, Kuehl's work was listed in third spot on a Winnipeg best-seller list for hardcover non-fiction.

As of press time, the search was still ongoing in Baker Lake for Solomon Tulurialik. Tulurialik, 29, went missing while out boating with his son and stepson about five kilometers from the community on July 31. Reports indicate Tulurialik ran out of fuel and decided to swim to shore to retrieve more, but it appears he never reached the shoreline. The two young boys were returned safely to the community. All information for the latest update is provided on behalf of the Hamlet of Baker Lake in collaboration with the Baker Lake search-and-rescue (SAR) and the Baker Lake RCMP. Weather conditions improved towards the end of the week and were favourable to the search effort for the most part. The Hutterite Emergency Aquatic Response Team (HEART) was still at work in Baker last weekend. Emergency numbers for contact in Baker are (867) 793-1111 (24 hours) for the RCMP and (867) 793-2571 for SAR's search desk. Volunteers should ensure they call the SAR number to check in and out. All search volunteers: please remember safety first and wear life jackets, floater suits and helmets. Know your limits. Donations to the search effort can be made through GoFundMe.com – Baker Lake Search and Rescue-Sala, while EMTs can be sent to Kaviq Kaluraq at atsia@hotmail.com. All donations help pay for HEART, gas, food, rope, hooks and many other needed supplies. Communities across the Kivalliq have been rallying to the cause and pitching in. Volunteers in Rankin Inlet held a penny sale this past week, with all proceeds going to the search effort. Search co-ordinator Richard Aksawnee took to social media to thank numerous organizations and individuals for their donations to the search effort, including the local hockey community. "For those asking to donate cash to search-and-rescue, you can deposit your donation into the Qamani'tuaq Qiniqtiit account at the Sanavik Co-op," he stated. "When you make a donation to that account, the Co-op will give you a five-per-cent discount towards your purchase at the till." Baker's Marianne Uqayuittuq also took to social media to thank a number of people for their fundraising efforts – as well as the community of Rankin Inlet – on behalf of the Tulurialik family. "A heartfelt thank you to Amarotuak Wiebe, Pierreta Inukshuk and Cassandra Nattar for fundraising a lot of money ($1,298.05) for Baker Lake search-and-rescue," stated Uqayuittuq. "Matnalluavik Rankin Inlet for your generosity in our time of need. Our words cannot express how grateful we are. "God says, love thy neighbor as thy love yourself, and this is a great example. "May God bless your families abundantly! Matnatsiamiaq from the Tulurialik family."

Remember victims, not the murderers Northern News Services

The methods used to report on serious crimes in the modern media have been a pet peeve of mine for years, and it has led to more than a few long conversations with copy, news and managing editors over time. And, while there may finally be a bit of light at the end of the tunnel – coming from the United States in the wake of two more senseless mass murders in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas – the change will be long and painful, if it happens at all. As an example of what I'm alluding to, ask yourself two questions. You may know O.J. Simpson was charged with the murder (found not guilty in criminal proceedings during Sanikiluaq a long, televised ‘trial of the century') of an ex-romantic partner and her friend, but can you name the two victims? A lot closer to home, the names of Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod are burned into the public's mind forever, following the manhunt in Northern Manitoba for the two young men suspected of killing three people. In fact, many people had themselves twisted in knots over the international media referring to them as teenagers – the two were aged 18 and 19 respectively – instead of young men. They were referred to as teenagers because anyone 18 or 19 years of age is, in fact, a teenager. The question, however, remains the same. in asking yourself: what are the names of the three people the two are suspected of killing? Do you know how many of the

Dog days of summer for Kivalliq softball Major events define level of competitiveness for regional teams by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Rankin Inlet – Coral Harbour

Rankin Inlet travelled to Churchill, Man., in 2017 and grabbed the championship banner in the inaugural Calm Air Hudson Bay Classic softball championship. Rankin was not able to return to Churchill in 2018 to defend its championship, but did return in 2019 and went all the way to the final of the double-elimination tournament before bowing to the Seaport Sluggers in two games. Darren Ikakhik said the majority of the players on the 2017 championship team came from Rankin's New Era squad, while this year's team was comprised mainly of players from the Juggernauts. He said Churchill actually invited Rankin to compete in the inaugural Calm Air Hudson Bay Classic, and everyone had a great time on their way to the championship. "We skipped last year, which was kind of a drag as defending champs, but we decided to return and try it again this year," said Ikakhik. "We had different players this time, but we still did pretty well. "The Churchill tournament is about the same level of ball that we have at our Calm Air Cup in Rankin, which was taking place this past weekend, with, pretty much every team being competitive, and I like it like that." Ikakhik said you have to be ready to compete in every game at the event, as most of the teams are evenly matched. He said when it was just Rankin and the Sluggers left still standing, Rankin had one loss while Seaport was still undefeated. "That meant we had to beat Seaport twice to claim the championship, while they only had to win once to be

"We beat them the first game, but we ran out of gas during the second one. "There was about an hour break, or so, between the two games and that was really a bit too long for us. "We couldn't keep our adrenaline up that long and we just didn't have anything left for the final game." While Rankin came up just a little short in the Churchill tournament, the Salliq (Coral Harbour) Invaders came up just a little short on a much

bigger stage. The Invaders were the Cinderella team at the Slo-Pitch National (SPN) in Halifax, N.S., advancing all the way to the Coed E Division championship game on Aug. 5 before falling to the Alberta Guns. In Rankin last weekend, six teams competed for the Calm Air Cup championship, with New Era, Arctic Connections, Salliq Invaders, the Senators, Rockies and Fireball all vying for top honours.

Final results of the Calm Air Cup were not known as of press time. For more on Coral's amazing run at the SPN, including a number of

action photos from the team's championship game, as well as the final results from the Calm Air Cup, see the Aug. 21 edition of Kivalliq News.

Who is your favourite TV or movie character and why?

Horoscopes August 14 to 20 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Don't let your emotions get the best of you in a heated situation, Aries. You can come out on top if you remain calm and think through your responses with utmost caution. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, there are a few different ways you can play an upcoming situation. Taking a back seat and letting another person lead the way may be the smartest strategy. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 A few opportunities may drop into your lap, Gemini. However, just because things come about easily does not mean they are the right choices for right now. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, keeping things bottled up until the last minute seems to be the way you have been operating lately. You may want to try sharing your feelings and seeking feedback. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Wearing your emotions on your sleeve may get you attention, Leo, but it won't necessarily be the kind of attention you were hoping for. Reconsider what you share.

Avra Zawadski "Raven. She's half demon, half human and can transport herself."

Brooke Schweder "Harlequin, because she's in lots of movies."

Brooke Misheralak Capt. Marvel. She has awesome powers and she can fly."

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it can be challenging to relinquish control, but that is just what you will have to do at some point this week. This will be a good lesson to learn. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 It's hard to see someone's perspective when you have never gone through this particular situation, Libra. Keep that in mind when supporting a loved one in need. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 All it takes is a subtle change of perception to turn a situation around, Scorpio. Start by taking a few risks outside of your comfort zone for some new inspiration. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, it is good to be proud of your accomplishments. Just be sure not to come across as boastful, especially in certain company. You don't want to come across as bragging. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, asking for help is not admitting weakness. If you feel you are in over your head, call in the reinforcements. Then you can get back on track more quickly.

Hudson Kabvitok "Star vs. the forces of evil. Her magic is cool."

Kate Lindell "Adam Sandler. He's a really funny comedian and I'd like to be a comedian one day."

Raeya Kakuktinniq "Wonder Woman. I really like her shield."

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Good fortune is coming your way, and you can certainly spread the wealth if you desire, Aquarius. Chances are there are a few other people who can use a smile in the weeks to come. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Job security may have you sticking with a position long after the time has come to move on, Pisces. Reexamine the bigger picture and your goals.
