Lucassie Nakoolak

Ranger Since: 
1977

Originally from Coral Harbour, Lucassie became a Ranger over thirty years ago in his early twenties. Lucassie dropped out of the Rangers when he became an Anglican Minister but rejoined ten years ago after moving to Taloyoak. Lucassie is also the Search and Rescue coordinator for the community. He leads prayers before each patrol - and sometimes during them. Lucassie ardently believes in the role of the Rangers to help protect both Canada’s and the Inuit people’s right to the Northwest Passage.
