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.
