The Indigenous Peoples’ Commission welcomes Nathan (Ekpak) Gray as new IPC-Nunavut Chair

Posted on May 10, 2017

For Immediate Release

May 8th, 2017

The Indigenous Peoples’ Commission continues to grow and attract a new generation of Indigenous Liberals. On May 5th, Nathan (Ekpak) Gray was selected as the Indigenous Peoples’ Commission Nunavut chair. Ekpak is a young Inuk from Cambridge Bay, Nunavut and is very active in his community. He has volunteered for many different community events here in Cambridge bay, such as fundraising for breast cancer, coffee houses, and is a volunteer fire fighter with the Cambridge Bay Fire Department. He is an active volunteer for army cadets as well as being an active Liberal.

“The IPC is absolutely thrilled to have Ekpak joining the team. For the IPC’s work to be more inclusive, it is imperative we have not only representation from the territories and the nations in which they share the lands with, but especially an Inuit youth’s voice from Nunavut,” Chad Cowie, IPC Co-Chair (Male) stated. “Ekpak’s enthusiasm, knowledge, and experience are pivotal for a more robust understanding and consideration of reconciliation not only with Canada but the Liberal Party of Canada itself”.

As the National Vice-President for Youth, I am excited that Ekpak is joining us as our IPC-Nunavut Chair. He is both a young Inuk and a Chair at the same time, making him a strong voice for Nunavut. This goes to show that the IPC re-organization to be more youth-friendly is producing results. I am extremely honoured to be working with yet another talented young individual at the IPC Executive.” – Darian Doblej IPC VP Indigenous Youth

The Indigenous Peoples’ Commission represents and promotes the interests of Indigenous members of the Liberal Party and encourages the active and equitable participation of Indigenous people at all levels of the party structure.
