The Inuksuk Drum Dancers had a busy year representing the territory in Iqaluit and beyond.
“They perform traditional and contemporary Inuit music throughout Iqaluit and the rest of Canada. One of their mandates is to promote and preserve Inuktitut,” said Inuksuk High School choir director Mary Piercey-Lewis.
“Inuksuk Drum Dancers rehearse during their lunch hour three times a week.”
That’s above and beyond regular student duties and other commitments.
“Many graduating choir members go on to post-secondary institutions and become confident, successful leaders in their communities. They are the movers and shakers of the future!”
Next up, the group will represent Nunavut at the Arctic Winter Games in the Northwest Territories in March.
