Trip Update

23 Sep

Hello, everyone!

Sorry I’ve been away from the blog for a few days – we’ve been incredibly busy here. We got to go out on the land near Rankin Inlet yesterday – pictures are uploading to Flickr right now. We got to see a traditional sod house, or qammaq recreated by local elders, as well as lots of snow geese, Canadian geese and another siksiq, or Arctic ground squirrel. Unlike the last one, which was hidden in the grass, this one came right up to us – because we were between it and its burrow.

In addition, we’ve been spending time getting to know all of the artists at the Matchbox Gallery and Kangirqliniq Centre for Learning and Arts. As part of our project development here, I’ve been interviewing all of the artists and it has been amazingly rewarding so far. We’ll be sharing parts of those interviews over the coming weeks.
