I took this video of two young ladies who were demonstrating throat singing at a community gathering in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.
Here are more pictures from Cambridge Bay,Nunavut.

I went to the beautiful community of Cambridge Bay for the last week in October, 2009. This was my third trip there and more was discovered. The communty and the landscape changes each time and there is something new to see.
The first set of pictures are of the youth in the community demonstrating the sports of the Arctic Winter Games.
Another set of pictures is the fashion show that was held, the outfits are so beautiful!

I've been to Cambridge Bay, Nunavut twice and I'm going back in Oct/Nov. I really like it there, the people are terrific and the views are breathtaking. I love the North!
We were there in March, 2007 to do some training for community members from various communities. It was cold!
There was one day when the wind chill factor was -57. I did not go outside as much as I wanted to. The air is crisp and clean!
There are no trees and lots of rolling hills. There was snow as far as the eye can see.
There were some hunters going out on their skidoo's.
I was told there is some tourism for hunting expeditions and it is one way some of the community members make a living.
It was a beautiful clear day when my new friend Maryrose took me for a drive around the community.
This is a small creek with a bridge that takes you around to the cemetary and the Bay.
A view of the cemetary. They dig so many graves in the fall as the ground is too hard over winter.
A tower that connects the community to the world!
I enjoy my work in human services, I like traveling and meeting amazing people.
