Nipiit Magazine Distributed in Nunatsiavut

A new Inuit Youth Magazine has been distributed by the National Inuit Youth Council (NIYC).

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

She says the magazine is titled ‘Nipiit.’

It’s Canada’s first Inuit Youth Magazine.

Nipiit was officially launched during the National Inuit Youth and Elders Summit in Inuvik last month.

Watkins says the first edition of the magazine has been distributed to all of the Inuit regions.

This edition features a story on the Torngat Mountains National Park.

‘Spirit of the Torngat Mountains’ profiles Inuit Youth who had spent time at the kangidluasuk base camp this summer.

Although there was only a limited number of the first edition printed, the magazine will be available for download on the NIYC’s website at a later date.

The magazine will be distributed to each of the Nunatsiavut Government offices in the near future.

So keep your eyes open for the first edition of Nipiit.
