David Nanook

Ranger Since: 
1984

Born in Gjoa Haven in 1945, Nanook is one of the elders serving on the Rangers team in Taloyoak. Born out on the land, Nanook vividly remembers a time when his family was nomadic—living in snow houses through the winter and tents in the summer. A Ranger since the mid 1980s, Nanook was part of the second group of candidates to join the Rangers. As a respected elder, his input and advice are often sought by the younger Rangers.”
