Photo: Sharing is part of our culture

Nunatta Campus often holds staff country food days once a month and sometimes more times in a month, depending on the successful hunts of our family. Today, we had maktaaq that was caught by my brother in-law in Clyde River, and we also had shrimps that Josie's son had brought back from the shrimp boat he works on.

Sharing is a big part of our culture and although it is not listed in our IQ principles, it has been a principle that has made our forefathers to survive when there were times they would not have food, clothing and oil for heat.

Thank you to staff who celebrate the catch of their family with us, sharing still lives!
