Nunavik org honours late Inuit singer Charlie Adams and acts of bravery at AGM

Nunavik org honours late Inuit singer Charlie Adams and acts of bravery at AGM | Inuit Nunangat Stories | Scoop.it

In Kangiqsujuaq, Elsie Adams, the widow of the late singer and songwriter Charlie Adams, received a special lifetime award for her late husband’s contributions.

Adams died five years ago at the age of 55.

A pioneer in the development of recorded Inuktitut pop music, Adams played at numerous music festivals throughout the eastern Arctic over his 30-year career. He also toured in the United States and in Europe.

As a singer and guitarist, Adams was always generous with his talents. His most famous song: the cheerful “Quviasupunga” (I’m Happy).

In July 2004, Adams suffered a near-fatal accident when a car drove over him while he lay in a Montreal alley, and he never fully recovered from his injuries.

A video tribute to Adams was shown before Elsie Adams accepted the award, which reads, “thank you for all of your beautiful songs that touched our lives and the inspiration they bring to Inuit today and tomorrow.”

Video of Inuk woman plucking bird on Montreal metro train goes viral

Video of Inuk woman plucking bird on Montreal metro train goes viral | Inuit Nunangat Stories | Scoop.it

"...

The bird-plucker identified herself on social media as Christina David, a young woman from Kangiqsujuaq who is now living in Montreal.

In a Facebook post July 25, David said she was surprised to see the incident had made the local news.

“It’s not like we get to eat our country food every day,” she wrote. “I was so happy that I didn’t care where I was at the moment but all I have to say it that I ain’t crazy.”

It’s not clear what kind of bird David had with her that day, although she added that she was not eating the animal raw, as had been reported.

Montreal police have said the woman could face a charge of disturbing the peace, because the incident upset passengers around her...."
