The first young men’s day in Happy Valley Goose Bay celebrated their day yesterday.
We spoke to Jenni-Rose Campbell who is a member of the InuKatiget uKausingit
at the friendship centre in HVGB.
Campbell says Selma Jararuse is the Language Coordinator for the Labrador friendship center.
She was holding the event and was partnered with InuKatiget uKausingit.
Campbell says 6 young men celebrated their day which started from 10 am and lasted until 5:30 pm.
She says they were all dressed up and marched with flags while heading to the 11 o’clock service at the Moravian church.
After the 11 o’clock service the young men marched back to the Labrador friendship center to celebrate a traditional meal with their families and played Inuit games.
After Inuit games they all freshened up, then marched to the 4pm service and sang traditional hymns.
The Sermon was great and the families were very proud of their boys.
