Pictures of the Year International (POYi) - Award of Excellence - Issues Reporting Picture Story - "Nunavut - The Troubled North"

The pristine beauty of Cape Dorset gives little hint of the troubles faced by a population struggling to cope with a dramatic transition between their traditional lifestyle of hunting and fishing and their new community based living with a modern economy. An intoxicated woman is removed from a home after a disturbance on November 6, 2010, in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada. The RCMP detachment in Iqaluit is kept busy every night with domestic calls primarily caused by the abuse of drugs and alcohol. In keeping with tradition, most Inuit refuse to speak frankly about violent incidents in their communities, and refer to them only in broad terms as "the troubles." But with a renewed sense of urgency a men's group has evolved and is working within communities to hold healing services, like this one in Repulse Bay, Nunavut on November 13, 2010. Following a day of group therapy they held a healing service open to all members of the community where there were prayers, music and tears as men shared their pain openly and made amends with family members, and people came forward to be healed. A single word "why" is scratched into a wooden cross that marks a shallow grave in the Anglican Cemetery in Cape Dorset, Nunavut. The rates of suicide and violence in Canada's newest territory are far beyond those experienced anywhere else in the country.
