The cast includes, from left, Kuuri Panika, Natasha Allakariallak, Christine Tootoo, Pakak Inuksuk, Taqralik Partridge, Damien Leo Tulugajuk, Lois Ujaupiq Suluk and Vinnie Karetak. Kiviuq is a legendary hero of many Inuit stories who calls on his superpowers and spirit guides to help defeat the many enemies and obstacles he encounters. Iqalungmiut will get a chance to see the epic tale performed July 3 in Iqaluit for the Alianait Arts Festival. Performers will then head to the National Arts Centre in Ottawa for a July 21 performance. They also plan to perform July 26 at Living Ritual, a festival of international Indigenous performers at Toronto's Harbourfront. (PHOTO BY JAMIE GRIFFITHS/QAGGIAVUUT)
