HOPE AND JOY IN NUNATSIAVUT

The first of many beautiful moments that night was when young David Jararuse sung "Labradormuit" in his people’s mother tongue. Another came when Hopedale’s new boy band, the North Stars, played their homeland’s theme song again, life flowing through their fingertips to their guitar strings, electricity in the drummer’s hands. A group of drum dancers, all teenagers, stood patiently by, waiting for their turn to perform.
