Hip Hop Thrives in the Arctic



More and more Inuit youth in the Arctic communities on Baffin Island are getting excited about Hip Hop dance. Learn about the power of Hip Hop through Will Steger's Expedition to
the Canadian Arctic...
Dancing has been part of Inuit culture for centuries. Kilaujaq, the
traditional drum dance of the Arctic, is an excellent example of
this. "Square dance, hip hop, drum dance, it's all the same...to be
happy with other people" explaines Inuit elder Marie Airut. Read more at: http://www.youtube.com/user/hwydeven

Documentary on Arctic Hiphop - GLobal TV, April 19th






















Friday, today. Opened my mail and got really, really excited. Thanks Buddha!

"A 1 hour feature documentary by Randy Kelly will be on Global TV - April 19th at 7 PM Eastern Standard time. This will be an in-depth story of our BluePrint projects (Social Work through Hiphop) and how traditional Inuit culture is integrated as they find their own voice. It will be an incredibly positive story that follows a number of Inuit youth into their homes. Please help spread the word by forwarding this email to your contacts -we want to get all of Nunavut and the rest of Canada tuning in.

Lets all celebrate the spirit of these kids who don't give up on life !!! And bring Hiphop back to what it was always meant to be !
More info can bee seen on our projects at http://blueprintforlife.ca
