Our next stop is the Arctic Circle, where Toonik Tyme celebrates the return of the sun to Nunavut - a life giving season of renewal that has been cherished by the Inuit for millennia. This new season of migration provided Inuit hunters with the opportunity to reap the rewards of their hunting skills. Today, these skills are more sport than necessity as the people of Iqualuit merge past and present, North and South, to enjoy their Springtime celebration!
