My Amauti

Katie's mom, Julia, who lives back in Katie's hometown of Arviat, NU, recently sent me a beautiful amauti of my own. She had seen the pictures of me amaqing her granddaughter while I wore Katie's amauti. Of course it is the most wonderful, thoughtful gift I have been given in Nunavut. I nearly cried when Katie brought it over to me one night. I love taking Shemekia out in my amauti, she gets so relaxed and comfortable. Usually she falls asleep really quickly and I can hear her softly snoring from behind me.

Katie and Stephen's panik, Shemekia

Thank you so much Julia. All my love, from Iqaluit.
