After the recent Queens’ Diamond Jubilee Medals in Aklavik, the drummers and dancers performed.

Inuvik’s Peter Clarkson (a former mayor and today working with the GNWT) helped elder Mary Kendi participate by wheeling her around among the dancers.

Kendi, 97, was moving her arms in a drum dance motion, and you could see she was delighted. It was a really nice moment.
