The people of Nunavut have been waiting for many years to be heard as a nation. European powers have come and gone over the years, and the Inuit people have not had a fair say. It took one man to inspire thousands with the rally call "one Inuit nation". Nunavut needed to show the world that it was ready to be a player on the modern world stage, that it didn't want to be ruled any longer. Akiak Hunt, a young eccentric man, with good Inuit beliefs, and a touch of modernism, he was the perfect man for the job. Rallies for independence became more and more common in the sparsely populated northern territory. It was finally decided that there would be elections.
A peaceful letter of intent was sent to the American Commonwealth capital asking for independence. A political move, as the people of Nunavut had already made up their mind, and didn't need permission in their minds to be free. 500,000 people showed up for elections, 98% of the provinces total population. This was the greatest turn out the local officials have seen since the fall of Canada. In total 70% elected Mr. Akiak, with 20% for a John Smith, and 10% for various third parties. With Akiaks election, a team of 45 individuals, representing local villages and townships were brought in to propose a constitution for the people to vote on, and to decide on basic laws and legal structures, given a deadline of June 1st. A young, proud, fragile nation was born on the ices of the northern tundra, the people of Nunavut were second class citizens no more. With that, a letter of intent was sent to the Commonwealth, and a declaration was sent to the diplomats of the world.
