Ann is the newest Elder in Residence

The Elders in Residence program is pleased to announce their newest Elder to the group! Please join us in welcoming Takohikena, Ann Rose Kerkovius. Her given Inuinnaqtun name is Takohikena. Born in an igloo on Kikkitaukyuk Island, she was delivered by her Granny. Despite facing challenges, including residential schools, Ann Rose pursued her dreams. She defied odds, earning a Bachelor's and Master's in Social Work after raising her family. Returning to Nunavut, she worked tirelessly for her community, embracing her heritage and language. An athlete, reader and dedicated volunteer, Ann Rose's story inspires us all.
