Councillor Noah Papatsie
Born and raised in Iqaluit, Noah has three children and a spouse. His
parents were Josie and Malaya Papatsie originally from Northern Quebec
and Pangnirtung respectively.
Noah was educated on the land to be a hunter; which was important to
his parents so he can feed family in Iqaluit. He also attended Gordon
Robertson Education Centre and was trained in many technical aspects in
Noah had a long career with Inuit Broadcasting Corporation beginning in
1989 as a puppeteer and successfully worked his way up to directing. He
worked on a number of award winning projects until a lighting accident
occurred which eventually caused his blindness in 2005.
Being blind did not stop him from moving forward. He learned braille,
computer skills, and living skills. He never let his disability slow
him down and he still enjoys hunting.
Despite his challenges, Noah continued to serve the community as a
volunteer with the Nunavut Makkinasuaqtiit Society and has been an
advocate and leader for Iqaluit and Nunavut.
Noah understands Iqaluit and the people that live here. He honours his
Elders, knows the importance of the younger generations and wants a
better place to live for everyone.
