A story of love, faith and miracles in Baker Lake

Boy expected to die shortly after birth celebrates eighth birthday by Darrell Greer

Baker Lake

Each of the eight candles on BrettGranderson Arnalugaq Ikinilik's birthday cake in Baker Lake last month marked one year the boy was never supposed to see. It's been a tough road for the specialneeds child and his mom, Arlene Ikinilik, but the two continue to defy the odds together as Brett enjoys life every day, despite the challenges he faces. Brett was born with a defective heart and faced emergency heart surgery during Sanikiluaq his first month of life. Arlene, 28, said it was an incredibly difficult time, as she tried to deal with doctors telling her not to get her hopes up because Brett wasn't going to make it. Brett's heart wouldn't pump correctly

Spooky night's fun Arviat Hamlet employees and youth volunteers did a spooktacular job of creating a genuine Halloween experience for youth in the community last week in Arviat. The kids got to experience some truly spooky scenes, some great character scenes and some truly magical scenes during their visit. They also, of course, flew away into the night with lots of great treats.

Baker HTO Baker Lake The Baker Lake Hunter and Trapper Organization (HTO) has a limited supply of maps available to the public. The maps are of Aqsarnik (between Baker Lake and Chesterfield Inlet) and Tavaani (between Rankin Inlet and Whale Cove). The maps may be picked-up at the local HTO office. In other HTO news, the Baker Lake HTO is also participating in the Government of Nunavut Department of the Environment's (GN-DOE) wolf sample collection project, which is running from now until the end of March 2020. The Baker HTO is collecting 49 wolf head samples for the project and will be paying $300 per sample. Anyone interested in taking part in the wolf project can bring their wolf heads to the GN-DOE. Payment for the sample heads will be made through the Baker Lake HTO.

Sports awards Baker Lake/Rankin Inlet The annual Nunavut sports awards covering the time period from March 31, 2018, to April 1, 2019, saw Jim Kreuger of Baker Lake receive the First Air President's Award of Excellence for his work with the local hockey scene over the years. The award is presented by the Recreation and Parks Association of Nunavut. Darren Nichol of Rankin Inlet was also given special recognition for his involvement for hockey over the years by the Sport and Recreation Division of Community and Government Services.

and his blood would often flow the wrong way, "The way Brett's heart was pumping made it very difficult for him to breathe," said Arlene. "They didn't say exactly when he was going to die, but they told me before his surgery and again after it, that Brett wasn't going to make it but we just finished celebrating his eighth birthday. "He's been strong enough to fight for his life from the day he was born and I know he'll keep fighting for his life for many years to come." Brett still doesn't talk but he's an active young boy who, like so many other young boys in the Kivalliq, loves the game of hockey and cheering for his favourite team, the Winnipeg Jets. He also loves to watch the TV show Family Feud, because he likes the show's host, Steve Harvey. He would also eat chicken noodle soup every day and never complain. Arlene said Brett, now in Grade 3, does interact with other kids, despite not being able to talk. Sometimes, however, he will hit people if he gets too excited or really nervous. "He's able to use sign language to communicate with others. There are a few kids in town who can sign with him but mostly it's teachers and student support assistants at the school, as well as my five-year-old baby, Cathy. "I worry about Brett constantly. I really need a break, but there's really no-one around who can handle him like I can. "I'm very happy that Brett is fairly well adjusted and gets everything he needs at school. "They really do a lot to help my boy, especially Pia Qaqqaq, who is the mother of Nunavut's new MP, Mumilaaq Qaqqaq." Brett still faces another surgery in twoto-four years to, hopefully, correct his enlarged blood vessels. Arlene said the doctors are amazed he's doing so well, especially his neurologist, who never thought Brett would ever be able to walk. Brett also has to deal with a seizure disorder. Yet, despite all the prophecies of doom, Arlene said Brett is a content, happy boy, who enjoys life. "I think about his next surgery every day. I try to cope with it by praying and singing to Brett every day. He gets really

As much as Arlene loves her son and would do anything in the world for him, the strain of being a single mom and shouldering the load by herself for the past eight years has taken its toll. She chokes up, trying to fight back the tears, when she says Brett may be going to the Naja Isabelle Home in Chesterfield Inlet. "I would be able to work and be a better provider for my family if I did that, but Brett doesn't know anything about it. I'm not sure he'd understand or accept it because Brett and I can't go a single day without each other," she said. "I'm a single mother and I've been doing this on my own since day one, eight years ago and there's times I feel like I just need a break. "But, then, if Brett was in Chester, I'd worry about him every minute of every day because I love him so much. "So, I still don't know if that's the answer or not." bflA m2WZ6

Bringing a scene to life ¥∂¿ú

School elder's artwork graces the walls at VSS in Chesterfield Inlet by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Chesterfield Inlet

A prize win at a staff party almost two decades ago has come full circle to help beautify the interior of Victor Sammurtok School (VSS) in Chesterfield Inlet. VSS teacher Ana Leishman won a prize draw for one of Rosalie Sammurtok's drawings at a staff party in 2002 and, as the years flipped past, she continued to think about how important it would be to have Rosalie's artwork adorning the walls of the school. Recently, Leishman took on a little extra beyond her professional development literacy activities, transferring the images of Rosalie's 2002 artwork – an iglu, a man and a woman – onto a wall to form a type of a scene that brought the images to life. Leishman said the original artwork she won was a vertical print with three images on it: a hunter at the top, an iglu in the middle and a woman on the bottom. She said the print hung in her house for a number of years until an RCMP officer, James Mearns, was doing relief work in Chester around 2007 and she found out he was an artist. "James agreed to draw a mural on the wall of the school and then he and I painted it," said Leishman. "Since that time, I added another

A scene inspired by the artwork of Rosalie Sammurtok was painted on the wall of Victor Sammurtok School by Ana Leishman in Chesterfield Inlet last week. and we held a contest in the school for the kids to come-up with some drawing ideas for the walls. "So, we had a mural on the elementary side's entrance and then we did something similar on the senior side. "Then, a few years ago, while painting the school, they painted over all the murals except the one that

was done by James Mearns. So, since then, we've kind of had these bare walls, other than student artwork that was put up temporarily." Leishman said when she decided to do something with the walls, she thought of redoing the mural she had originally done on the elementary side of the building – adding some things and taking some away.

She said she put a sketch on the wall and then asked Rosalie if it would be OK if she added some of her artwork, as well. "She was really modest about what she had that might be good enough to be used on the wall, because she's really an excellent artist," she said. "So, I brought in the piece I had won years ago and she had forgotten

use that for the inspiration behind putting a scene on the wall. She said that was fine, so I put the images on the wall in more of a scene, with the iglu in the background and the woman approaching the man on the ice." Leishman said throughout the process, she asked Rosalie what colours she wanted and how she might want it to look to stay as true to her original drawings as possible. She said it was very important to her that Rosalie liked the finished product because she's been teaching at VSS for decades, is an elder at the school named after her father, is the VSS language instructor and is an amazing artist in her own tight. "Rosalie showed me some of the other artwork she's done over the years. When she was a younger person, she did one of the drawings that's on the painted glass windows up at the church," she said. "We have a lot of hidden talent in our school and I thought what better way to showcase it than on the walls. "We had a dance at the school (recently) and the kids were walking past the scene and commenting on how nice it looked. "I may have been the painter of it, but it's Rosalie's artwork on the walls." bflA m2WZ6

Trend reversal will lead to stronger Kivalliq communities Northern News Services

It wasn't all that long ago when there were valid concerns being raised over the fact that not very many women in the Kivalliq region seemed to be interested in being involved in municipal politics. Since that time, there's been a fairly steady increase in the number of Kivalliq women seeking office at the municipal, territorial and national levels. This time out, while no woman was elected mayor, three vied for the position across the region and no less than 25 of the 56 council seats up for grabs were won by female candidates. Sanikiluaq Not quite parity, but a good sign for more female involvement in the future, especially when you consider three of the four candidates for Nunavut in the recent federal election were female. Add to that the fact two of the three federal candidates had strong ties to the Kivalliq, with Nunavut's newest member of parliament, Mumilaaq Qaqqaq, hailing from Baker Lake. Different candidates for the various levels of political office run for their own personal reasons but, let's be clear, those who are elected quite often become role models for the younger set of female youth in their home community and beyond.

Rankin lands eight medals, has player selected for winter games at Iqaluit qualifier by Darrell Greer

Northern News Services

Rankin Inlet

Members of the Rankin Inlet table tennis team brought home a total of eight medals from the territorial trials in Iqaluit last month. The Rankin players captured gold in U15 women's doubles, silver in U18 men's singles and bronze in U18 mixed doubles, U15 mixed doubles and U15 men's singles. Gholam Dareshoripour was selected for the Arctic Winter Games, while Gregory Wiseman was named as an alternate. Coach Mark Squires said Rankin's play in Iqaluit was a huge improvement over this past year. He said he and fellow coach Olusoga Tomoloju are very happy with the progress the players are making. "We have a player (Dareshoripour) selected to go to the Arctic Winter Games now in U18 men's singles and we're

very proud about that," said Squires. "Our players have put in a lot of time to improve their play this year. Our team worked very hard this past year, as well and we're now seeing the progress from that dedication and the exposure we received in Iqaluit. "We had a game plan coming in this year and we trained very hard. And, in Iqaluit, we were rewarded for all our hard work." Squires said it's hard to compare table tennis with hockey and soccer, which are the two big sports in Rankin Inlet. He said table tennis gets nowhere near the exposure those two do as a sport. "When you turn on the TV you see hockey, football and soccer. It's very seldom that anyone turns on the TV and sees professional table tennis," he said. "When I was in Grade 8 about 15 years ago, I went

"I couldn't understand why every Inuit player was exceptionally good until I made it to the North and realized sports is everything here."

Nemesis of Dracula Theatre Feature by Gord Billard Arviat

ᑕᑯᔭᒃᓴᐃᑦ Northern News Services

The Clergyman (Andrew Okatsiak) gives his crucifix to vampire hunter Rudolph Meyer (Andy Evaloakjuk), centre, to see if local girl Marianne (Katy Suluk) is a vampire while Town Bailiff (Lydia Kaviok) second from left, and Rudolph's brother, Nicolas (Kevin Mikiyungiak), far right, look on.

The John Arnalukjuak Drama Club dropped the audience dead with its production of the Nemesis of Dracula just one day shy of Halloween last week in Arviat. The production marked only the second time the club has performed the Nemesis of Dracula this century.

The Lamplighter (Phil Kinak), centre and his wife (Cidney Aulatjut), right, are greeted by a mysterious Stranger (Russell Suluk) at the entrance to the village cemetery during the John Arnalukjuak Drama Club presentation of the Nemesis of Dracula in Arviat last week.

Count Dracula (Ted Thompson) is raised from his tomb by a Stranger (Russell Suluk) he had previously turned into a vampire. ABOVE: Dracula (Ted Thompson) awakes one final time before vampire hunters, from left, Young Man (Myles Budden), Rudolph Meyer (Andy Evaloakjuk) and First Man (Jayden Angalik) plunge a wooden stake through his heart.
