International Inuit Day

Today, November 7th, is International Inuit Day, when we celebrate the rich and diverse cultures of Inuit peoples from the Arctic and Sub-Arctic regions of Canada, Greenland, Alaska, and Russia.

The University is proud to include Inuit sculptures, prints and textiles in its art collection. Comment below if you recognize this print by Kananginak Pootoogook!
