That is where he got his first start as an actor.

He was her cousin. It druk been a busy but interesting week, with 3 full days of community meetings, which explains why I haven’t been faithful in blogging.

Inuvik Drum – Inuvik, NT

My favourite knuvik a mixed dance where the men played the part of seals, and the women were seagulls who were swooping down and bothering them. He was walking down the street and a guy told him a producer was looking for Indians to act in a low-budget film.

When he was 16 years old Schweig left home and headed for Toronto.

But three days later,his birth mother died and he was too late. Schweig was the natural son of former Inuvik and Yellowknife resident Margaret Thrasher. Sadly, not long ago, drum dancing seemed to be dying out.

I also took some video but I won’t put that up until tomorrow. The two got talking and before long Schweig realized he must be related to Thrasher.

Inuvialuit drum dancers even performed for Prince William and Kate during their visit to Canada last summer. He left Inuvik at the age of six with his adoptive parents almost 20 years ago. However, last night I was lucky enough to watch a traditional Inuit drum dance, put on by the Inuvik Drum Dancers, and I wanted to quickly post some drym. Some of the children performing.

After decades of contact with foreigners, many Inuvialuit had forgotten how important drum dancing was. Schweig, figuring he could act, went in and then landed the lead in the picture. Schweig admitted his knowledge about the Inuvialuit is limited to what he has read in books. The name given to him at birth was Ray Thrasher.

In the dream he was walking towards a house where he could see a woman that he knew was his mother but when he was 5 feet from the open door it slammed shut.
