Nellie Winters is an elder from Makkovik.
And she’s been noticing the weather this year.
Winters says the ice in her community froze up February 22nd.
She says the ice is bad to go on at the moment.
The hunters have to go on the shoreline to get wood and hunt.
Nellie says she’s very busy with her crafts as well.
She’s made some crafts for the Olympic games to sell.
Crafts she made were knitted caps, dolls, men and women’s mitts.
As well as silapaks and children’s booties.
