February 23 to March 10, 2021 ribbon Canada Winter Games 2007
Mascot - Nunavut

Hi I’m Uqila which is pronounced ou – ke – lah and I’m the Nunavut mascot for the 2007 Canada Winter Games.  My name means fast or light on you feet in Inuktitut.  Inuktitut is the language spoken by the Inuit people in Nunavut which is where I’m from.  I’m wearing a traditional parka.  It’s made with sealskin and trimmed with fox fur.  The fox fur helps block the fierce arctic wind and the seal skin is waterproof.  My boots are Kamiks and they’re also made of sealskin.  My socks are wool duffle and were embroidered by a local northern artist.
