Happy Nunatsiavut Day! Today is a very special Nunatsiavut Day, as it marks the 10th anniversary of the formation of the Nunatsiavut Government.
We’ve been working on a very special issue of Them Days in celebration of this day, and I’m so excited about it. One-hundred-and-ninety-six pages of stories from Nunatsiavut!! (That sounds like a lot, and it is, but believe me, there were a LOT more!)
Jillian Larkham and I worked on this issue together, and since it was sent to the printers, it’s been weird not working with her on it. Jill, I miss you!
There is such a wealth of stories and histories from Nunatsiavut, and it was really quite amazing to put it all together. The publication consists of new stories about the path of the LIA through land claims negotiations, coupled with older stories from previous issues of Them Days, all compiled into one large compendium of Them Days. At 196 pages, it has the most pages of any Them Days publication ever produced, AND it is also the very first Them Days publication with a full-colour cover! (So you see why we are just so excited about it.)
This special publication would not have been possible without the funding for it from the Nunatsiavut Government. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And Happy Anniversary!
So, without further ado, here it is:
Now get on out there and celebrate Nunatsiavut!
