Wawatay Native Communications Society and North Star Air have recently partnered to launch Wanakoosh, a new quarterly in-flight magazine featuring stories from First Nation communities across Northwestern Ontario. North Star Air reached out to their Facebook & Twitter fans and ran a naming contest to help them with some name ideas for their new magazine. The winning name idea was Wanakoosh, which means “Star” in Oji-Cree.
The seasonal magazine will be distributed on all North Star Air flights, online and in all of Wawatay newspaper distribution areas. In addition to learning more about their airline service, all passengers on North Star Air flights, and all readers of Wawatay News will enjoy reading unique and exclusive stories about the places they can travel with North Star Air. Also, readers will be entertained about special events they can enjoy, the services available to them, and the people they can meet when they get to their destination.
The Wanakoosh in-flight magazine will be found on all North Star Air aircraft serving their Flex Flight network which includes these following communities; Thunder Bay, Sioux Lookout, Red Lake, Pickle Lake, Bearskin Lake, Cat Lake, Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (Big Trout Lake), Wapekeka, Muskrat Dam, North Caribou Lake (Round Lake/Weagamow), Sachigo Lake, North Spirit Lake, Deer Lake, Pikangikum, Poplar Hill, Webequie, Neskantaga and Eabametoong (Fort Hope).
Readers can also experience Wanakoosh through all Wawatay News outlets across Nishnawbe Aski Nation, Treaty #3, and towns of Sioux Lookout, Timmins and Thunder Bay.
Commencing the summer of 2016, North Star Air is proud to announce the monthly delivery of Wawatay News to their Flex Flight network.
This exciting new publication will provide an economical means of advertising your company’s products and service to these travellers and readers.
The first issue of Wanakoosh is out now.
