The dance, which will be for six days, will be his attempt to set a new world record for the longest individual dance, which presently stands at just over five days. He will be dancing from March 27 to April 2.

The dance will also be used as a tool to create an awareness to the plight of suicides In the Nunavik region, and all of that week, the community will be engaged in prevention activities that would provide them with strategies to combat suicide.

A Guinness World record representative will be on hand to witness the feat. The village of Inukjuak has a population of about 1,600 Inuits and, like many other villages on the Coast, has its problems with suicides, alcoholism, and other social ills.

The event is hoped to be streamed live, and in the event that it is, it can be accessed at

Daniel first made history in St Vincent and the Grenadines, when in March 2005, he, along with Noel Butcher, walked 240 miles in six days around St Vincent without sleep. In 2007, they completed a seven-day continuous walk around the island without sleep. Since then, Daniel has completed other marathon walks, including a walk in New York City.
