The Inuit cast and crew from Kiviuq Returns recently returned from an unprecedented tour of Nunavut presenting the show to hundreds of Nunavut children and youth in 11 communities and all three regions.

The cast and crew, who are all young Inuit, taught attendees the songs and stories they had learned from elders. These Inuit youth were involved in many leadership roles while on tour, including managing the tour, teaching, perform­ing and running the technical aspects of the show.

Kiviuq Returns is about an ancient Inuit hero wanderer and his struggles to find his way home. For more information, visit qaggiavuut.com
