Here on an early fall morning, young Nunavummiut lace up on a prized patch of ice in their community of Hall Beach, to join their friends and play. Taken for Project North by Michelle Valberg, this sweet, poignant portrait captures the sheer innocence, freedom and joy of childhood — of children at play. It speaks to us all about how important the stewardship of our land’s most precious resource — its children — really is. And how we owe them no less than to do all we can to help ensure they grow up enjoying health and happiness in a safe and secure environment. What could be better than that!
