To the Baffin Island Inuit arts and crafts are part of life. Their handbuilt kayaks are marvels of construction and speed. Skins for new garments are dried and softened, then decorated with Indigenous inspired patterns. Ivory carving, bone shuttles, and hand-fashioned spears, are products of traditional skill, while legendary stories, drumming, singing, and dancing, are enjoyed by old and young alike.
