Gjoa Haven Girls Go Shopping
You can always tell the Nunavummiut at the airport. They are the ones with giant black plastic containers full of all the things they can buy in the south. Sheila Konana (left) and Pamela Angutingunierk are no different.
Neither am I, on my last trip to YK, I filled two "Action Packers" If you know what Action Packers are, you probably live in the North.
These two girls are a part of the Team Nunavut Women's Hockey squad, and both are from Gjoa Haven, a small community in the western Kitikmeot region of Nunavut. It is pronounced JOE-Haven, but spelled with a G.
These two came to Yellowknife to compete.... but they also came to shop.
