This is a special Northern Edition of "The Story from Here," hosted by Abraham Tagalik of CBC Iqaluit. In Part One we hear dog breeders concerns about the genetic purity of their sled dogs; we meet Iqaluit students preparing for a trip to China, and visit a North West Territories school which is giving away free alarm clocks to ensure students are "on time by 9". Oh yes, and a wolf has been digging up graves at a pet cemetery in Happy Valley, Goose Bay, Labrador.
Abraham tells us about the "Watchers of the North" television series that's being made by APTN (Aboriginal Peoples Television Network). We learn about the distinctive art made by the now defunct Holman Eskimo Co-operative, and visit a unique school for Inuit culture. Finally, Abraham gets some tips from Norman Yakeleya, a North West Territories sexual abuse survivor, on how best to prepare Nunavut for a trial coming up this year involving multiple abuse charges against a former Roman Catholic priest named Erik DeJaeger.
