Welcome to beautiful Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. Winter is here, with a lot of snow already making the land and sea more beautiful. Soon the sun will set until January 2021.
The daylight hours are much shorter now, the darkness sets in beautifully as you walk and the lights all lit up, our little Christmas town.
Halloween was fun to watch with all the kids dressed up in their costumes, hearing happiness and laughter and excitement all over town, made everyone happy to see. Kids always make everyone happy and then the sad part of life goes away.
With winter back, the ocean, rivers and lakes are frozen over which makes it right time to go set your fish nets and go ice-fishing or just to walk on the beautiful white snow.
Parts of the Arctic Ocean towards mainland has not fully frozen over fully yet, so please be careful when heading out to go fishing or hunting or just going for a snowmobile ride. Being able to still go harvest for food on the land and sea is one of Inuit treasure and traditions.
We hope it will always be clean environment and that no pollution will ever reach our land and sea. I am proud to be Inuinnait from Nunavut. Continue to look after your land and sea and for generations on and on our grandchildren will take over and look after the land and sea.
Other countries around the world have problems with pollution and garbage and I hope Nunavut will never become like other countries. The relationship with Inuit and nature has always been there to respect it, from our Ancestors we were taught, and now it is our task to teach our children and grandchildren and for generations on and on and forever.
Take good care everyone, Keep washing your hands, check on your children and Elders. Look after one another.
God Be With You Son.
