Botched Bell directory debate in Nunavik draws the most readers
Inuit want to be respectfully depicted—that’s the takeaway from the two most-read stories of the past week on Nunatsiaqonline.ca.
First, a Bell Canada phone book cover provoked scorn in Nunavik.
That’s because the photo on the cover showed two non-Inuit, in a region where more than nine of 10 residents are Inuit.
The negative reaction to the directory cover surfaced after Jaaji Okpik, of the award-winning Twin Flames singing duo, changed his profile photo on Facebook in a spoof of the directory cover. Okpik superimposed his face and that of a friend on the telephone directory’s photo, which shows two non-Inuit who are apparently on a hike.
