Widow's Day in Nain

Tomorrow February 2nd is widow’s day in Nain.

We spoke to Margaret Obed who is the AngijukKâk and her assistant is Maria Ikkusek.

Obed says there will be twelve or thirteen widows celebrating their day at the community hall.

She says Sue Maggo and Alice Harris are the cooks, and the female servants are Maggie Okkuatsiak, Gordina Obed, Kitura Solomon and Elizabeth Obed.

The male servants are Joshua Jack, Joe Solomon and Paul Obed.

Obed mentions that the widows received a donation of $200.00 from Ullapitsaijet and, will ask the Northern Store and Big Land Groceries for donations as well.

She says there will be three church services, at 10am, 3pm, and 5pm.

Obed adds that anyone who has any wild meat to give to the widow’s day can go and see her at the hall, and that they would really appreciate it, Nakummek.
