Wow! Now that is some fancy qamutiiq!

Hey- Did you know your blog is featured in the newest Up Here magazine? I have been falling behind on my blog reading so I don't know if you posted about that. If you haven't seen it, let me know. I grabbed a free copy today and I can send it to you.

Spelling is interesting. It also depends upon the dialect in your area.

You should have kept a copy of "Un Inukshuk solitaire" -- there is a vocabulary/pronunciation list in the back that is very helpful!!

I have a copy of the English version at school .... I'll have to photocopy that back page .... although, it might be of no great help either as it was written by a different community .....
