Throwback to this spring's trip to Sam Ford Fjord, Baffin Island, landing on some epic peaks with my girl, C-GDCA (Debbie). Thanks Ronald Overdijk for the video of us landing with a team of jumpers on Polar Sun Spire Ridge. N70° 33′, W71° 15′

Having strong feelings towards this book of Inuit art I found at the markets 😍

Fun Fact Friday!
.
There are two bowhead whale populations in Canada – the Bering-Chukchi-Beaufort population, which occurs in the western Arctic and the Eastern Canada-West Greenland population, which occurs in Eastern Canada and Nunavut specifically.
.
Both populations were severely depleted by commercial harvest between the 1500s and 1914 (when commercial bowhead whaling was ceased). The Inuit Bowhead Knowledge Study carried out by the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board indicated that Inuit in Nunavut widely believed that the population had increased.
.
Although estimates vary, recent surveys indicate that the Eastern Canada-West Greenland has recovered to a population size of about 8000 bowhead whales!

We’re launching Kaapittiaq, a new Inuit-owned social enterprise company, and its new website! Premium coffee produced by and for the Canadian Arctic, with 75% of annual sales revenue reinvested into culture and language programming projects. The beans are sourced from Indigenous communities in Peru with the help of @cafevasquez and then roasted by @beaverrockcoffee before being sold in the Canadian Arctic. Check it out at www.kaapittiaq.ca ☕️

This is the #narwhal that hangs from the entrance of @fisheries_oceans In Winnipeg. Very productive few days there last week updating and exploring synergy across multiple concurrent projects on the movements of marine mammals and fish in the western Canadian Arctic, including the Fish Movement project I started this year out of @ulukhaktok on Victoria Island, #northwestterritories. #unicornofthesea #realanimalpicscomingsoon #sciencemeetings #workingtogether #canadianarctic #teezerpost

Modelling is my passion! 😆

The residential school experience is an intergenerational trauma that has caused language loss, shame and wellness issues. Today, many Inuinnait are demanding their language, and the reconnection it will give them to their Elders, their ancestral worldview and untold generations of traditional knowledge.
