This is a special Far North edition of the program. It's hosted by Abraham Tagalik, the morningshow host in Iqaluit. In this episode we visit Inuvik's annual sunrise festival. Abraham learns about two animal mysteries. Why are 25 lb. arctic hare turning up on doorsteps in Grise Fiord? Are they afraid of the dark? There's no light yet in this northern town. Inuvialuit women are reviving the tradition of facial tattoos. And there's an Inuit kindergarten in Ottawa where children are learning about their language and culture.
In this episode Abraham Tagalik introduces us to an Inuit pilot named Johnny May who is soon to be the subject of a 3D movie. We'll hear about health problems in Nunatsiavut, Labrador and how Joanna Awa is quitting smoking with the help of school children in Iqaluit.
