March 2013 - Kangiqsualujjuaq, Nunavik, Quebec, Canada. His friends skate, turn, brake, avoid a body check, outmaneuvers their opponents in a ballet of disconcerting feints worthy of Montreal Canadian’s players, to score in a game without referees and time clock. Standing and leaning on the ice rink side, this young Inuit, smaller than the others, waits for his turn on the ice. When asked why he is not on the ice, he turns toward me and says with a veil of deception in his eyes: “They never stop”.

I was there for 40 minutes, and he never jumped over the rink side. I hope he got his turn.

By leaving the arena, I think of the Inuits community who also waits on the edge and watches from the side, the game that is being played by the mainstream society.
