Empty seats were hard to find last night at Nakasuk School in Iqaluit as hundreds of Iqalungmiut packed the school's gymnasium June 21 to celebrate all things Inuit on National Aboriginal Day, including a performance by up-and-coming Arctic Bay singer-songwriter Jordan Muckpa. Artists from across Nunavut took turns on the stage as part of a free concert hosted by Alianait Arts Festival. Iqaluit mainstays the Daniel Kolola Band and the Inuksuk Drum Dancers were complemented by sets from Muckpa and Pangnirtung-native Looee Arreak. Arviat's Calvin Pameolik and Kugluktuk fiddler Gustin Adjun, originally scheduled to perform at the concert, had to cancel at the last minute. (PHOTO BY STEVE DUCHARME)
