Funding for the Akulivik Carvers’ Committee

By September 14, 2017

2000: The IAQ provided $2,000 to the Akulivik Carvers’ Committee to assist winter quarrying and to the Sananguaqtit Qatugiqatigingit in Puvirnituq. That same year, the IAF also gave two $5,000 New Sun Awards: one to the Green Soapstone Inukjuak Committee, which resulted in 20,000 pounds of stone, and one to the Natsilik Fine Arts Group in Uqsuqtuuq, which resulted in 5,000 pounds of stone and a survey of new quarrying sites.
