My name is Jamie Takkiruq, I am from Gjoa Haven, Nunavut. My favourite after school activity is ping pong. My most favourite thing to do is to go to traditional drum dances, I like it because I get to learn things about the past from the elders like what games they used to play and most importantly how to drum dance. I would like to be an Inuit games teacher so I can teach the games I have played so I can carry on traditions I have been taught to keep the Inuit tradition.

Abstract:My project investigates Echolocation. Echolocation can be used to map the ocean floor, producing updated maps. This is very important to the Northwest Passage in Nunavut, as we have such a short shipping season. Echolocation is also helpful to Narwhals which are very valuable to the Inuit people.
