Coral Harbour was abuzz with life last week after a group of five hunters harvested a 8-metre (27-foot) bowhead whale. "It was a dream come true," said Aaron Emiktowt, who led the hunt. Emiktowt and his crew of Greg Ningeocheak, Darcy Nakoolak, Joe Saviakjuk and Spencer Saviakjuk had been working throughout the spring to take down one of the giant creatures. Emiktowt said it took a total of nine trips to Ruin Point, a traditional gathering area where bowheads are usually found in the spring, before they were finally able to find the perfect conditions for taking one down. "Every time we went out, we would see these whales

"We were assuming that and we would try and hunt one of them. It was a learning whale would get into the shallow part of the island and experience," said Emiktowt. "There was one time when sure enough it happened," we were trying to hunt it on said Emiktowt. It took the men two hours a little row boat and there to get out to was another Ruin Point. time when the Once there, whale came out Emiktowt on the floe edge teamed up with but once we got Ningeochea k close it would in one 18-foot hear our footsteps and then aluminum boat would just dive." while the other After eight three men got Aaron Emiktowt unsuccessful into another. scouting trips It didn't take and with goose long for them to hunting season just around spot the whale.

However, by the end "I asked him to snug the of June the ice was crack- buoy out in front of the bow ing closer to the sea shore, so we could get towed around which presented them with and maybe tire the whale out an opportunity. sooner. Darcy was the other driver on the other boat, so I told him to try and get close to get another harpoon in. As they approached the whale – it was a real active one – it turned on them and started attacking the boat instead. In the process he threw the harpoon and hit it and the whale kind of submerged on the boat," explained Emiktowt. "Darcy grabbed the throttle and got away just in time. They were lucky they didn't get flipped over." Even with two harpoons, the whale continued to put up a fight. Although he had a grenade-propelled harpoon at his disposal, Emiktowt said it was too unwieldy to use, so he ordered the men to start firing on the bowhead with their rifles. After hitting the whale with a few rounds of heavy ammunition, it slowed down a little bit. "One time when we got on its side, the whale came out of the water. It showed its head and its neck and I took a shot where the neck meets the skull and it got knocked out." After 20 minutes of fighting it seemed like the hunt was finally over. But as the men grabbed the ropes to pull the animal back to their sleds, the whale moved. "I asked Greg to reverse the boat and I grabbed my spear and I speared it behind the flipper," said Emiktowt. "It went in and got the heart and then it just started floating." Once they finally pulled the whale to shore, the men made a post on Facebook to notify the community to come out and help butcher it. A few hours later there were 50 people cutting up the whale and collecting the meat, blubber and muktuk, all of which was shared with the community. "All that was left was the skull. We just left it on the shore for the shrimp to eat."

"They were lucky they didn't get flipped over."

Search on for dump fire suspects Naujaat RCMP are seeking information about people setting fires at the dump on June 29. According to a message posted on the hamlet's Facebook page, anyone with knowledge of what happened should contact the hamlet or RCMP. "We consider this incident to be serious and the setting of fires is extremely dangerous and will not be tolerated," read the statement. "Please speak to your kids about this issue and if you see something, please report it immediately."

Garbage pick-up schedule Baker Lake Baker Lake has slightly altered its garbage pick-up schedule. The residential schedule is as follows: Monday – Blocks 4,000, 5,000 and 7,000 Tuesday – Blocks 1,000, 2,000 and 3,000 Wednesday – Blocks 4,000, 5,000 and 7,000 Thursday – Blocks 1,000, 2,000 and 4,000 Friday – Blocks 3,000, 5,000 and 7,000 Commercial garbage pick-up will continue to be Monday, Wednesday and Friday for all blocks. The hamlet is also reminding people that used batteries and empty propane tanks are picked up on Thursdays. The public is being asked to dispose of those items on that day by leaving them beside their bins.

Caribou approaching Rankin Inlet Rankin Inlet The spring caribou herd was getting close to Rankin Inlet at the end of last week. Agnico Eagle announced that it will continue to monitor the herd and follow its caribou management plan with the help of the Kivalliq Inuit Association, the Hunters and Trappers Organization and the territorial government. According to the plan, all mining activities will be suspended when between 1 to 50 caribou get within 100 metres of the road. Hunters are reminded not to shoot directly across the road or within the work area.

Gun safety Baker Lake The Hamlet of Baker Lake is currently looking for people who would be interested in taking a gun safety course. The personal acquisition licence is required for all gun owners in Canada. People interested in getting additional certifications can also take the Nunavut Online Hunter Education Course. The online course is a voluntary, self-study program designed to help educate new or inexperienced hunters and is not intended as a replacement for traditional knowledge learned from elders or mentors.

People in the Kivalliq have long been voicing concerns about bears becoming more aggressive.

Welcome to Canada? Northern News Services

When I was first starting out as a journalist in Yellowknife a few years back, I found myself on the phone with a local city councillor. Near the end of the call he asked me where I was from. "Toronto," I replied. After a brief silence the councillor responded: "Well, welcome to Canada." Having previously lived most of my life in cities, visiting a Northern community in a predominantly Indigenous territory with long winter nights and never-ending summer days was a new experience. But that comment was the first time I was directly confronted with the idea that there could be more than one version of Canada. As I spent my second Canada Day in Rankin Inlet I found myself having to ask myself what it means to be Sanikiluaq Canadian. That's why I decided to make it the question for this week's Street Talk. The answers were as diverse as Nunavut's Inuit. Some people spoke of multiculturalism and freedom, others of community and Inuk pride. But, for all the people who wanted to share their stories of pride and celebration, there were many others who were less reluctant to cheer on Canada and didn't want to share their stories publicly. Indeed, some people I spoke with

Canada Day celebrations were full of action in Rankin Inlet last week. Following a parade through town, the community gathered for a massive barbecue, which included hot dogs, cupcakes and ice cream.

One of the biggest highlights of the day was the dunk tank, which had people lining up both to dunk and be dunked. Activities continued throughout the afternoon with events all over town, which finished up with a square dance later at night.

Rankin gymnasts somersault into B.C. Aqsarniit Ujauttaq find success performing at national event by Cody Punter

Northern News Services


Aqsarniit Ujauttaq (Northern Lights Gymnastics) has long had a motto: if you're going to dream, then you might as well dream big. Now the team is seeing its biggest dreams come true. The 19 members of Aqsarniit Ujauttaq recently earned the opportunity to perform on a big stage when they took part in the Canadian Gymnaestrada showcase in Vancouver last month. "We couldn't be more pleased with what they did," said coach Lisa Kresky. This was the second time the girls performed outside of Rankin, having previously done a showcase in Las Vegas. Kresky said there were a few nerves during dress rehearsal, but with each performance they got stronger and more focused. At one point in their routine, they even had the crowd clapping along. "The girls just got more and more excited to perform," said Kresky. In total, the gymnasts did four routines over the course of the trip, including a performance for the closing gala. The Rankin team was one of eight – out of more than 60 groups – that got chosen to participate in the gala. "It was super busy and

super fun," said Alyson McKay, who is one of the Aqsarniit Ujauttaq's members along with her sister Kortni. Rankin Inlet's gymnastics club has been around for 14 years but this was the first year the team participated in the Gymnaestrada. Twelveyear-old McKay has almost been there from the beginning, having started in gymnastics with Kresky when she was two years old. "I've been in gymnastics for a long time," said McKay. "(Gymnaestrada) is a brand new thing for me so it's very important to me." Kresky emphasized that the Gymnaestrada was not a competition but a way for athletes to demonstrate their routines in front of new audiences. "It's really designed for anyone who wants to be involved," said Kresky. "There was a team of people from Edmonton [whose youngest member] was 67 and the oldest guy was 86." Kresky added that the trips are about so much more than gymnastics. They taught throat singing to a group of 300 people and were demonstrating Inuktitut on bus rides with other delegations. They also attended an event where they learned how to write their names in Japanese. "They were amazing

With the world showcase set to take place in Austria next summer, the girls are now turning to the monumental task of raising $150,000. That's how much it will cost to

get an entire team of 19 girls, three chaperones and coach Kresky there and back. "That's including all flights, accommodation, registration fees and uniforms," said Kresky. Although it may seem like a huge amount of money,

Kresky said the girls are going to do everything they can to raise the amount. They are even looking at potentially getting some sponsors. Among the highlights of going to Austria would be the opportunity to perform alongside 2,000 other people from all over the

world. With almost exactly one year until the event in Austria, Kresky said the girls are already preparing their routine. "Everyone came back really excited and looking forward to the possibilities in the future," said Kresky.

What does being Canadian mean to you?

Horoscopes July 11 to July 17 ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, when everything is going your way, you are absolutely glowing. But if things don't come naturally to you, frustration may set in. Find a balance between the two. TAURUS Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, planning stages are over and now you're about to turn your goals into reality. Just be sure to adapt to the changing environment as things unfold. GEMINI May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you might be seeking ways to help others in need, but you do not have patience when things take longer than expected. Stick to the plan and see it through. CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, it is important to support others' goals and the steps they take to achieve them, even if you do not necessarily agree with their formula for success. LEO Jul 23/Aug 23 Happiness has less to do with what is happening in the world and more with your own perceptions, Leo. Keep this in mind as you move forward in life.

Shuvasish Syeda: "Multiculturalism, diversity and the beauty of the land."

Rory Suwaksiork: "We're the true North, strong and free."

Madison Aliyak: "I just take part in the events and wait for Nunavut Day.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, challenges at work may be tiring you out. People may seem like they are all over the map instead of working together. Try to get everyone going in the same direction. LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23 Avoid going too far off in your own direction this week, Libra. Before making any rash decisions, take some time to ask questions and get answers. SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, if something doesn't initially work to your liking, don't be shy about giving it another go. The challenges ahead will be worth it when you ultimately succeed.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20 Nothing in a current relationship is unfolding as you had expected, Capricorn. That's alright. This sense of adventure that keeps you guessing is a welcome change.

Alfred Voisey: "Getting together as a community is really important to us."

Kristin Netser: "Freedom."

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, working closely with others is one of your strong points. Disagreements on how to approach different projects can be tricky to navigate, but you're up to the task. PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, this week there may be little separation between your career and personal life. If that works for you, forget the naysayers.
