Ittaq is proud to receive a new funding award from Tides Canada to support research on Clyde River’s marine environment. The funding will support an Ittaq-led project that will bring together Elders, hunters, youth, and local photographers and videographers. The project will have several components, including documenting Inuit knowledge of our oceans and ice, as well as our culture and heritage that connects deeply to this environment. We will work with local leaders, researchers and others throughout the project.
Ittaq staff and filmmaker Mike Jaypoody took home top prize at the 2014 Yellowknife Film Festival for Tony, Back from the Brink which won Best Feature Documentary. We are so proud of Mike, and also of Tony Kalluk, who’s story is featured in the film. Tony is a counsellor at Ilisaqsivik in Clyde River.
