Elder Simon Niaqunnuaq

 

Simon Niaqunnuaq was born near the Community of Gjoa Haven. Simon and his wife had six boys and one girl. He had fun in the old days, although he didn’t go to school but he learned alot. He said that school is important. They had no medicine in the old days and people didn’t get sick as often as they do now. A young couple didn’t get married through a minister, but were chosen by their parents. He is happy about the new Nunavut Governemt because it makes him think of the old days.
