Speakers: Kairyn Potts, Jody Lerat, Mitchell White
Nunatsiavimmiuk Mitch (he/him) White’s journey has been one of a storyteller, as a journalist and within Indigenous policy and industry on a local, regional, national, and international level.
That journey has taken him to almost every corner of the Arctic by air, sea and ice, including most communities in Inuit Nunangat. An expedition to Antarctica gives him bi-polar status.
He also jumped at opportunities to serve as the Youth Representative on the Nunatsiavut Transitional Government, a Councillor on the Nain Inuit Community Government, and on the boards of APTN, Canadian Roots Exchange, and Arctic 360 (current).
