N.W.T. teens receive $25K for youth magazine

Inuvialuit youth-focused title, Nipaturuq, recently received $25,000 from Canadian Roots Exchange to keep publishing a magazine that began as a school project, reports the CBC.  

 Founders and childhood friends Cassidy Lennie-Ipana and Mataya Gillis launched the magazine a year ago, after a school visit to Ivvavik National Park, and are now set to publish their fourth edition after getting great feedback from the community.

The first three editions focused on what being Inuvialuit means to youth, climate change and mental health. The next issue will tackle racism.

Canadian Roots Exchange is a charity founded in 2009 by a group of young people whose goal is to foster leaders who can help realize reconciliation in Canada. It runs workshops, conferences and intercultural exchanges.

  The Inuvialuit Communications Society, which distributes its own magazine, Tusaayaksat, to Inuvialuit beneficiaries around the world will also distribute Nipaturuq.
