The Heong Gallery: Inuit Visions of the Polar World
Thursday 10 May 2018
The Inuit of the High Arctic are famed for their navigation skills in a vast landscape, but just how far can they travel? Come to the Heong Gallery to discover the full extent of Inuit visions of their landscape across land, sea, and ice, with routes spanning the full width of North America all the way from Alaska to Greenland. Participants will have a rare opportunity to think through these Arctic ‘songlines’ of connected trails using original large scale floor maps and hand drawn routes of the Inuit elders of Nunavut. Michael Bravo of the Scott Polar Research Institute and co-author of the Pan-Inuit Trails Atlas, will share with participants his understanding of the way in which Inuit connect with their living landscape through their long history of extraordinary travels.
