Charlie Panigoniak

There’s been quite a number of Inuit who visited Labrador from the North and some who came in the 1980’s.

Charlie Panigoniak is an Inuk from Iqaluit.

He says he came to Nain and did some performing in Inuktitut.

At that time he was working with Inuit Broadcasting Corporation or (IBC.)

Panigoniak recently broadcast an NHL game for the first time ever in the Inuit Language. The game was between Ottawa and Montreal.

He says he and Annie Ford travelled to Yellowknife to broadcast the game.
