Nunatsiavut on Jeopardy

The popular game show Jeopardy featured Labrador as a topic on last night’s show.

The quiz show is hosted by Canadian, Alex Trebek.

In the double jeopardy round, Labrador was the fifth topic introduced.

Not only was Labrador featured but Nunatsiavut as well!

The $800 question was ‘In 2005 these native people created a regional government called Nunatsiavut to preserve their culture’.

The answer was Inuit!

And the contestant got it right.

For $1600 the question was ‘Found on the coast, opalescent specimens of a feldspar known as labradorite are sold under this “lunar” name’.

Once again, the contestant was right, with the answer ‘moon eyes’, otherwise known as anorthosite.

Unfortunately, time ran out for the round and the last clue for Labrador was not given.
