Unikkausivut: Stories from the North features a selection of Inuit prints that illustrate the colourful stories that have been passed down through many generations. Many Canadians are unfamiliar with Inuit stories – in spite of their number and variety – because they were traditionally passed along orally. Inuit communities use storytelling as a way to share knowledge about their history and culture; with each new generation comes new details, thus contributing to the many variations and abundance of their stories.
