NunatuKavut Community Council denounces harmful lies and hurtful statements in latest release from Nunatsiavut President
TheNunatuKavut Community Council (NCC) issued the following statement in response to Nunatsiavut Government’s media release about the Provincial apology to residential school students from NunatuKavut:
“Once again, this release by Nunatsiavut President Lampe is filled with lies, innuendo, lateral violence and hurtful statements. At the end of the day, the position of President Lampe has nothing to do with identity but everything to do with greed. As before, they are playing politics with the lives of NunatuKavut Inuit. Leadership within the Nunatsiavut Government have chosen to dehumanize our people and the genuine suffering and historical injustices they endured in the residential school system. This is a stark reminder of how politics have no place in times like these.
The upcoming provincial apology on Friday will be a profoundly important day and a time of healing for many of our people, families and communities. NCC will continue to support and care for our people and lift one another up as we have always done. This is the way of our ancestors. This is what honours all Inuit.”
