Labrador Inuit at Olympic Opening Ceremonies

The Opening Ceremonies for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics took place on Friday.

There was an audience of over 60,000 at BC place and millions tuned in to watch it on their television sets.

Among the performers taking part in the Opening Ceremonies were people from Northern Labrador.

From Rigolet, Ivy Campbell, Jennifer Michelin-Elson and Kerry Pottle were there. From Hopedale, now residing in Nain, was Boas Mitsuk.

All four people were seen on television by viewers.

Mitsuk was seen drumdancing with all the indigenous youth from across the country for hours on end.

He was also seen drumdancing behind Canadian singers Bryan Adams and Nelly Furtado!

Once they all return from Vancouver, OKâlaKatiget radio will contact them for an interview for our Teen Rockers show, so keep tuning in!
