: >>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.!!
It's good to see another Canadian posting here!! Welcome!
Were you part of the celebrations? We watched part of them on a big screen downtown! It was a moving ceremony..(I also enjoyed the cake...:))Yes, Nunavut is a great chapter in our Canadian history. I hope the Western Arctic will follow soon.
Hope you post again...
