Treaty Day Fish Dish Challenge
On August 21 of each year, we commemorate the British-Inuit Treaty of 1765. This was an important agreement to find peace and protect our rights to self-government, harvest of wildlife and natural resources and commercial right of trade. As beneficiaries of this Treaty, NunatuKavut Inuit remain deeply connected to the land, waters and ice that surround us. This includes our rich marine resources, which are integral to our way of being. Today, we celebrate this Treaty that recognized and protected our rights as Inuit over 250 years ago.
In honour of Treaty Day, we are encouraging NunatuKavut members to cook a fish dish on Friday, August 21. Send us one photo of you or a family member preparing, cooking or eating fish with a sentence of what this day means to you and your name will be entered into a random prize draw for an awesome $500 FISH FRY PACKAGE!
Submit your photo by end of day Monday, August 24 by:
- NunatuKavut Facebook Page Messenger OR
