It’s Saturday morning and Buffalo Airways co-pilot Hermant Chingunde is wondering why I’m jotting down the names of the flight crew. “You’re not from Transport Canada are you?” he asks. “Nah,” the check-in agent standing beside him quips.
Louisa Moreau stares at my first attempt at moosehair tufting. “Holy smokes!” she exclaims. I know. I know. It looks more like a bad hair day than the kind of delicately crafted three-dimensional flowers that I’ve seen displayed in shops and museums around the Northwest Territories.
