NUNATSIAQ NEWS
This group of Iqalummiut gathered to show their support for the seal hunt and seal products March 27 by posing for a “sealfie” in front of the Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. monument. Iqaluit filmmaker Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, with friends Nancy Mike and Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory spearheaded the call for the photo in Nunavut's capital - their response on the popular “selfie” posted by U.S. talk show host Ellen Degeneres during this year's Academy Awards. Degeneres' photo earned $1.5 million for charity, which she donated to the Humane Society of the United States - a strong opponent of the sealing industry. (PHOTO BY PETER VARGA)
