Nick Kolola, 19, (left) who is on the boys basketball team and Jasmine Oolayou, 15, a drum dancer going to the games, revealed the team uniforms at the Legislative Assembly March 12. The two athletes presented CGS minister Tom Sammurtok, far left, and Nunavut Premier Peter Taptuna with commemorative pin sets, similar to the ones Team Nunavut athletes will take to Alaska when the games start March 15.
