Nunavut is located in northern Canada and it is Canada's newest territory. Previously a part of the Northwest Territories, Nunavut became its own territory in April 1999. It is a territory that extends northward from mainland Canada to include most of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Nunavut is the largest of all the Canadian provinces and territories when it comes to land area however, it also has the smallest population in Canada with only about 30,000 residents, most of whom are Inuit. Nunavut is the only region in Canada not connected to the rest of Canada by highway and its capital is called Iqaluit. Its economy mostly centers on its natural resources and mining.
The culture in Nunavut is very much inspired by its Inuit people. Inuit throat singing and country music are both popular here as well as bluegrass, square dancing, the accordion and the fiddle. Some of Nunavut's most famous people include Susan Aglukark, an Inuit singer/songwriter and Jordin John Kudluk Tootoo, an NHL player.
