Happy Nunavut Day!
It’s been 26 years since the signing of the Nunavut Agreement and 20 years since Nunavut became its own territory.
“It feels like the blink of an eye. But we understand that meaningful progress takes time,” Nunavut Environment Minister David Akeeagok told a crowd gathered at the Iqaluit four corners for a BBQ and concert. “We are unique, we are worthy, we are strong, and this is our Nunavut. Happy Nunavut Day!”
With the weather at a balmy 25 degrees in the Nunavut capital, people were ready to celebrate as they lined up for free hot dogs, beavertails, and bannock. Check out our photos below.
