Welcome to our beautiful home of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, a busy little fishing village on the southeast tip of Victoria Island.
Good news to see the sun back after few weeks of darkness. It is always a nice way to start the new year. You can view the amazing sun on the horizon towards Mount Pelly and it usually sets overlooking the image of Kudlak’s little cabin. Yes Kudlak’s cabin sits on a hill watching over everyone in Cambridge Bay. It is a nice reminder that we are looked after by our Elders and ancestors.
Students continue to attend school both at the Kullik and Kiilinik. High school students have a schedule to follow for classes and courses, taking turns using social distancing and taking precautions to avoid the Covid-19 virus from spreading. Looking after our children is most important and making sure they are having something to eat, so the youth centre offers a breakfast program Monday to Friday. Lunch programs are also offered, both at the youth centre and high school for pick-up lunches.
The community food bank also operates Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, please check their schedule. A big thank you to all those who work hard daily to keep our children fed and well taken care of. Due to Covid-19, Elders programs and gatherings are not happening but the wellness centre staff cooks and bring cooked meals twice a month to our Elders.
The Kitikmeot Inuit Association and Arctic Co-operatives Limited continue to provide meat packs for beneficiaries in response to pandemic concerns. Meat packs are provided once a month till March 2021.
Remember to continue washing your hands, wear your masks and continue social distancing to avoid the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Stay well, everyone.
God Be With You Son.
