Premier Taptuna celebrates National Aboriginal Day

Premier Peter Taptuna released the following statement:

"As we celebrate National Aboriginal Day, I am humbled by the strength and resiliency of Inuit across Nunavut and Canada. We are a passionate people who take pride in our culture, language and traditions.

Today, we stand with our Indigenous friends and families across the country and observe our unique spiritualities, beliefs and rich histories – all of which helped to shape Canada.

I encourage all Nunavummiut to celebrate our identity today and every day. Strength of character and commitment to our identity leads to a prosperous, healthy Nunavut."
