: As promised here is another link for Nunavut. The festivities started
: last night with fireworks in Iqualuit( formerly Frobisher Bay), the new capital of Nunavut. The Premier of Nunavut, Paul Okalik,is the perfect choice to lead his people.He can relate to them in every way as he experienced many hardships. Among them were: numerous suicides in his family,alcoholism etc. BUT- he was strong enough to turn his life around, finish his education and became the first Inuk lawyer...
>>Hi, I was just glancing through your site, and I noticed NUNAVUT being mentioned.
I live in Iqaluit, the Capital of this new territory, and it's great to see people from the States etc showing an interest in this truely historic development. I have come across people in Canada who are oblivious of the Nunavut Territory.
We should all be standing and cheering for the first North-American aboriginal peoples to finally gain there own homeland and government.!!
