The mushers left Inukjuak this morning for Nauliravik (translation: where you harpoon), which is approximately 58 kilometres north. This will be their first of two overnight checkpoints before arriving in Puvirnituq.
Nauliravik was a small village before the signing of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement. There are cabins at Nauliravik. Alec Aupaluk’s new partner is Simon Ningeok.
