2010 National Inuit Youth Summit

The National Inuit Youth Council (NIYC) is calling for presenters for the National Inuit Youth Summit.

Shelly Watkins is the Youth Project Coordinator with Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami.

She says they are seeking presenters for the summit in four different areas: cultural values, health and well-being, communications and education and employment.

People interested in presenting during the summit are asked to submit a summary of what their presentation will be.

Watkins says to date there haven’t been any submissions from anybody in Labrador.

This doesn’t surprise her though.

She says they aren’t expecting many from this region due to the fact that presenters must cover their own expenses.

At most of the summits, the presenters are usually from the area where the summit is being hosted.

For example, the summit was hosted in Nain the last time around and the majority of the presenters were from this region.

Watkins says that if anybody is interested in presenting during the summit, they are asked to submit a summary of their presentation to the NIYC.

The National Inuit Youth Summit is scheduled to take place August 16-20, in Inuvik, NWT.
