Network Recognition for “Nunavut Quest: Race Across Baffin”

Piksuk’s new documentary series has been selected by its primary broadcaster, the Aboriginal People’s Television Network (APTN), to represent an example of the network’s best indigenous journalism at a world conference of indigenous broadcasters.

The World Indigenous Television and Broadcasting Conference will be held at Kautekeino in the Sami territory of Arctic Norway, at the end of March. The theme of this third media gathering is Indigenous Journalism.

The 6 x 22-minute series follows the traditional Inuit dog sledding race, which in 2010 ran the 500 kilometres along the coast of Baffin Island, from Pond Inlet to Clyde River It’s a thrilling test of stamina and skills through a spectacular Arctic landscape —  a mix of adventure and cultural survival as Canada’s Inuit renew their ancient bond with their dogs.  The television series is accompanied by an interactive website and a video game.

    Nunavutquest is a good source for anyone who needs to know about do sledging and especially about the Inuits. I love the game too, it’s really cool. It is better if the game exe file is zipped or be available in other form of download so it would ease users to download.
