Erin Strachan stands next to the two crated industrial sewing machines that were recently flown on the Agnico Eagle Mines charter to Baker Lake. "She's gone to India, Tibet and Nepal to teach people how to sew things, or to help find a market for the traditional crafts they produce and create jobs for people" Strachan said the two also want to host a tea while they're in Baker to invite people in the community who make crafts to come and show their wares. She said Inns's work with recycled fabrics may be able to help the thrift shop with some things that just aren't moving. "The thrift shop has a pile of T-shirts that nobody is buying, so we can take those T-shirts, cut them up and make them into wall hangings or something else," said Strachan. "So, if we can have people bring in their crafts, it might give Emma ideas on what to turn the T-shirts into." Strachan said the process will be one

step at a time. She said people in Baker won't start automatically producing stuff they can sell overnight and the first step is for them to get comfortable with the machines. "Once they're comfortable they can start doing some repairs and earn some income that way," said Strachan. "We're also hoping the machines can be used by people for their own projects. "We will have to establish some sort of studio fee for their use, or, if the person doesn't have the money to pay the rental fee, they could volunteer the equal amount of time in the thrift shop or food bank that they used the machines for. "We want them to be used as much as possible, but we also have to make sure the people using them don't break them because they are very old machines.

Skill, pride and civic responsibility by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Rankin Inlet

A small group of students in a new initiative at Simon Alaittuq School personally delivered a new sign they created for the Slapshot Canteen in the new arena at Rankin Inlet. Teacher Ed Seymour said canteen operator Chadd Burrill contacted the school to see if students could be involved in making a poster for the canteen. He said since he's been doing some woodworking with a group of students to introduce them to the trades, he figured they could go a little better than a poster. "We've done things like make a buddy bench for the school for students who are feeling down that day to sit upon and another student can sit beside them and try to help cheer them up," said Seymour. "So, when our vice-principal came to me about Chad's request, I knew we could go one-step better and design and make a sign using leftover materials from the

buddy benches. "I'm in the middle of building relationships with the trades college and I'm currently in the preliminary stages of exchanging e-mails with them to set-up a program to introduce Grade 5 and Grade 6 students to the trades." Seymour said one of the students in his initiative is actually Burrill's daughter, Destiny and she immediately asked to be part of the project. He said she actually helped him design the canteen's logo on the sign. "Once I cleared with Chadd that the logo was OK, myself, Destiny and ... students Joachim Angoshadluk and Arthur Amarook completed the process in about a week. "The students really had a ball doing the sign," said Seymour. "I asked Chadd if we could put the three student names on the sign so when it's up family can come and see it and it's something those three students can take some pride in and show their parents what they did in school.

"Sometimes parents don't get to see everything kids do at school and it's important for them to see their kids interacting with the community and doing something valuable for the community." Seymour said the program he's working on with the trades school would involve the same students to begin

with. He added first on the agenda would be to expand the reach of their buddy benches. "We'll be looking at building some benches that we could donate to the elementary school and some other possible locations and, maybe, look at some other simple woodworking community-

type projects," said Seymour. "That way they get a bit of civic responsibility and they get to experience how good it feels when you do something like that for somebody. "I'm hoping to build relationships with the trades centre so that kids can be exposed to more options for their education.

"Not all kids are going to go to college or university and, as a tradesman myself before I became a teacher, I understand just how much we need housing maintainers, electricians and plumbers and 10-to-12-years old is not too early to learn new skills and that they may have some giftings in that area."

Training needs to reflect needs of job market Northern News Services

Two chance encounters this past week focused the spotlight inside my brain back on a reoccurring chain of events I think our region is finally getting the handle on, even though there are plenty of southerners who still walk among us. The first encounter was a guy who worked construction twice in Rankin, once about seven years ago and the other was way back in the 2002. Overall, he was impressed with the changes he saw in Rankin Inlet and by how many Inuit from the community were working at the Meliadine gold mine and a few other places. The one thing he still couldn't get Sanikiluaq his head around, however, was how many southerners he still saw in Rankin who were here to do a job for as long as it could last, while obviously not living here. Except for specialists, engineers and the like, he had thought by now there wouldn't be a need to bring in so many people from the south to fill job positions, especially when it comes to jobs on construction projects. He told me, in his opinion, there should have been a specialized

Students burn off excess energy Activity hallway installed at Victor Sammurtok School

by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Chesterfield Inlet

A new addition put in place over the holiday season at Victor Sammurtok School (VSS) is being warmly received by students at the school in Chesterfield Inlet. The idea came to fruition through the combined efforts of staff members Ana Leishman and Horace Palmer. Leishman said teachers and staff at VSS have been trying to do a lot of different initiatives to include as much of the student body as possible. She that they're also trying to work on a few behavioral initiatives for kids who may just need a break once on awhile. "Our school's really small and we don't always have the space for kids to go and workoff some energy," said Leishman. "Sometimes, when it comes to behavioral problems you might have in the classroom, you don't have the tools in the classroom to deal with them or the students just need an environmental change. "I had come across an Activity Hallway online that promotes a lot of physical movement in the hallway and it was set-up in a way to also have students concentrating on the hallway's objectives.

"Horace (Palmer) found an example of the type of hallway we wanted and reached out to contact a company in Manitoba called Jump 2 Math, which we exchanged ideas with back and forth for about a year." Leishman said they liked a lot of what they saw, but they wanted an Activity Hallway that featured more Northern themes the VSS students would be familiar with. She said some of the things the company had were amazing, but they were geared towards southern experiences and they wanted to link the hallway with things the kids knew up North. "In the end they showed us an Activity Hallway that would feature an inuksuk, an iglu with letters on it on the wall, arctic char running, walking like a polar bear, hopping like different arctic animals, rocks and a qamutiik with a syllabic chart so that the kids go up one rung and down the other. "We ordered it and the company sent us this giant roll of stick-able material and, kind of, explained how to work with it. "Another teacher, Vicki Tanuyak and I spent four days over Christmas installing it in the hallway on the elementary side of the building.

"The custodians were fantastic to help us out and, when we were finished, it had taken 10 coats of wax to do these amazing floor stickers properly." Leishman said the first day the kids returned to school in January was absolute bedlam and pandemonium. She said they were so excited to finally see the Activity Hallway and they couldn't wait to try it. "The kids absolutely love it. They had been peeking-in through the doorway during the holidays trying to see it. " We hadn't told them what was happening, so they could see something on the floor but they didn't know what it was. "The first week was crazy but now they all follow the rules when using it and it's something that focuses on the kids' needs so it's proving itself to be a great addition to our school."

Coral claims bantam crown

r?9o3u iWK5, WzJx8i, /8kxE 29, 2020

Team defeated Rankin Rock 5-4 in overtime by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Rankin Inlet

Prime Paniyuk scored on a beautiful wrap-around early in the first overtime period to give Coral Harbour a dramatic 5-4 victory over Rankin Inlet to claim the 2020 Rankin Rock Bantam Championship in Rankin on Jan. 19. The Rankin Rock had scored twice late in regulation time to erase a two-goal deficit and send the game to overtime tied at four. Arviat got past Naujaat 6-5 in overtime to claim the bronze medal at the event.

Also competing at the bantam championship were Baker Lake and Team Kivalliq. Speaking with Kivalliq News immediately following the championship game, Coral head coach Ross Eetuk said the tournament was a hardfought battle all weekend long and the Coral players never took a game for granted on their way to the championship. He said the team knew what to expect heading into the final game against their longtime rival, the Rankin Rock. "It all came down to one game and, in the end, we were

the better team," said Eetuk. "It became somewhat obvious as the tournament went on that we were going to meet Rankin again in the final. "It's happened so many years now that every time we come here we expect to meet that Rankin team in the final. "A Coral vs. Rankin final is nothing new in this tournament." Eetuk said Coral has several players who can dominate any hockey game and they were the team's strength throughout the tournament. He said things were getting

a little tense with his players when the Rock scored twice late in the third period to tie the game. "I kept telling them to calm down as were getting ready to start overtime, but these teenagers all have a mind of their own and it can be difficult to calm them down sometimes. "I told them to calm down, be patient and good things would happen. "Anything can happen when it comes down to one game between two teams like this to win a tournament. "We were that team today and that makes us very happy."
