NTI News: Food Security Strategy and Action Plan Released

 The Nunavut Food Security Coalition today released the Nunavut Food Security Strategy and Action Plan on the first day of the national Hunger Awareness Week. The aim is to provide all Nunavummiut with an adequate supply of safe, culturally preferable, affordable, nutritious food, and incorporate a food system that promotes Inuit Societal Values, more self-reliance and environmental sustainability.

Six themes have been identified that structures the strategy and action plan: country food, store-bought food, local food production, life skills, programs and community initiatives, and policy and legislation.

“Reducing hunger and increasing food security is a collective responsibility of individuals, organizations and government and that is why the groundwork of the coalition is so important,” said Monica Ell, Minister of Health, Government of Nunavut. “The strategy and action plan, which we have already been implementing, is designed to be a tangible blueprint to address the availability, accessibility, quality and use of food.”

The coalition is a task group of the Nunavut Roundtable for Poverty Reduction, and co-chaired by the Government of Nunavut and Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. Coalition members include government departments, Inuit organizations, non-governmental organizations and the private sector.

“In 2010, we learned that the majority of Inuit households, including those with school-aged children, experience severe food insecurity, which affects the health and well-being and impedes an individual’s participation at school and work,” said NTI Vice-President James Eetoolook. “Through our collaborative efforts on the Nunavut Food Security Coalition, NTI is committed to the full implementation of the action plan, and we hope to ensure all Nunavummiut have access to affordable, nutritious foods to ensure success at school and in the workplace.”

Through the implementation of the strategy and action plan, the Nunavut Food Security Coalition ensures efforts translate into significant progress toward achieving its collective vision of a food secure Nunavut.

Nunatsiavut News: Voter turnout up in advance polls

 The number of Beneficiaries of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement that voted in yesterday’s advance polls for the May 6 election for Ordinary Members for the Nunatsiavut Assembly is up significantly compared to the 2010 election.

A total of 242 voted in yesterday’s advance poll, compared to 140 four years ago. The number is also significantly higher compared the advance poll for the presidential election in 2010 when 103 Beneficiaries cast ballots.

President Sarah Leo attributes the higher turnout to the work being done by candidates to engage voters, as well as a public awareness campaign launched by the Nunatsiavut Government this year, utilizing social media such as Facebook and Twitter as well as the government’s website to encourage Beneficiaries to be more involved in the election process.

“All candidates have made concerted efforts to engage Beneficiaries in all Constituencies,” says the President. “As well, in today’s electronic age more and more people are turning to social media to gather information and to ask questions, so we felt it was important to utilize this important medium to engage Beneficiaries and hopefully encourage as many as possible to play a more active role in forming the government.”

Following is a breakdown of the votes cast in yesterday’s advance poll, as well as figures from the 2010 election for Ordinary Members and the 2012 presidential election. (No advance poll is held for the Canadian Constituency as ballots are mailed to the Nunatsiavut Electoral Officer.)

Statement of Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs Kevin Washburn on the Passing of Billy Frank Jr.

 WASHINGTON, D.C. – Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs Kevin K. Washburn today issued 

the following statement on the passing of Billy Frank Jr., a member of the Nisqually Indian Tribe 
and chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission in Washington State: 
 
“Billy Frank Jr. was an undaunted defender of and respected elder statesman for tribal treaty 
fishing rights. For over 30 years he helped lead the fight to preserve and protect the salmon and 
its habitat in Western Washington, thereby ensuring it remains a vital part of Northwest tribal 
culture and the Pacific Northwest’s economy. 
 
“His wisdom on the importance of conservation and the protection of natural resources has been 
recognized by all who love the great outdoors. Thanks to his leadership and years of hard work, 
we can continue to appreciate the great gifts of nature that are still with us and the tribes of the 
Pacific Northwest can still rely on the salmon to sustain them for generations to come. 
 
“Thank you, Billy, for your tireless work for Indian Country and our nation. 
 
“On behalf of my office, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Bureau of Indian Education, we 
extend our condolences to the Nisqually Indian Tribe, the Northwest Indian Fisheries 
Commission, and to Mr. Frank’s family, friends and colleagues.”
Statement by the President on the Passing of Billy Frank, Jr

 I was saddened to learn of the passing of Billy Frank, Jr. – Chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission and a member of the Nisqually Indian Tribe. Billy fought for treaty rights to fish the waters of the Pacific Northwest, a battle he finally won in 1974 after being arrested many times during tribal “fish-ins”. Today, thanks to his courage and determined effort, our resources are better protected, and more tribes are able to enjoy the rights preserved for them more than a century ago. Billy never stopped fighting to make sure future generations would be able to enjoy the outdoors as he did, and his passion on the issue of climate change should serve as an inspiration to us all. I extend my deepest sympathies to the Nisqually Indian Tribe, and to Billy’s family, and to his many friends who so greatly admired him.
