We're proud to announce that our 7-part series "Hunting with my Ancestors" is now online! 🎞We'll be sharing photos & videos from the series as Isuma co-founder & #film director Zacharias Kunuk explores hunting at the core of #Inuit identity. (Link in bio)
Have we ever told you about our friends @synonymartconsultation? They operate some of the coolest arts programming in our home city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, including their yearly Wall-to-Wall Mural Festival. This year, they were able to work with Kailey Sheppard (@k_sheppard.art) to create this mural as part of the construction of the brand new Inuit Art Centre at @wag_ca. The Inuit Art Centre will be the largest single gallery space in the world devoted to Inuit art and culture, which we think is pretty amazing. Photo by @emilyfchristie.⠀

Time to either put you books away or bring them out, depending on whether your #autumnbreak has begun or ended. The #kids in the settlement Kulusuk, however, is already in full reading mode. It might be that they learn that Kulusuk, or Kap Dan, as it was known back then, had a bigger population than nearby Ammassalik in the 1930s. Today Ammassalik is called Tasiilaq and has approximately 2000 inhabitants against Kulusuk’s 250-300.
Så er det enten frem eller væk med bøgerne, afhængig af om din #efterårsferie er slut eller skal til at starte. Børnene her i bygden #Kulusuk er dog allerede i fuld gang med læsningen. Det kan være at de lærer at Kulusuk, eller Kap Dan, som den var kendt som dengang, havde flere indbyggere end nærliggende Ammassalik i 1930erne. I dag hedder Ammassalik #Tasiilaq og har ca. 2000 indbyggere mod Kulusuks 250-300.

“You should understand that everything has two polarities (two different sides) and one cannot exist without the other. That’s why love exists on the other side of hate. Even love without hate becomes destructive because of the balance of life. Darkness and light support each other, they go in hand. By accepting life as it really is, including fear, desire and weakness, you begin to understand the integrity of life." (Hivshu)
#хившу#мудрость#инуиты#мудрец#жизнь#гренландия#арктика "Вам стоит понять, что всё имеет две полярности, и одно без другого не может быть. Вот почему любовь существует с обратной стороны ненависти. Даже любовь без ненависти становится разрушительной из-за баланса жизни. Тьма и свет поддерживают друг друга, они идут рука об руку. Принимая жизнь такой, какая она есть на самом деле, включая страх, желания и слабость, вы начинаете понимать целостность жизни." (Хившу)

ROALD ADMUNDSEN AND THE POWER OF LOCAL KNOWLEDGE (2014)
Oil on Canvas - 30cm X 40cm
Leading on from my last post where I mentioned my fascination with the interactions and coming together of two very different cultures, and how I explored this subject in my paintings of Arctic explorers from back in 2014/15. Here is my painting that tells the story of the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, who was the first man to conquer the South Pole and to complete the route of the Northwest passage.
During his expeditions he wintered with the Netsilik Inuit people and unlike many explorers before him, who dismissed them as savages, took it on himself to learn their customs and survival skills. It was this knowledge that gave Admundsen the edge in the race for the South Pole.
Amundsen also would later become the first man to reach the North Pole by flight but in 1928 tragically died whilst on a rescue mission. His body was never found but it is believed that the plane crashed in to Bear Island.

💚Happy Birthday, Mya! @myaplanet9 Follow👉🏼@compassion_cult @rob____banks @itlpz
from @peta -
recalls the moment #PETA helped her make the connection between what people eat and what they wear 🙏
Wishing this inspiring woman a very happy birthday today!
Its coming up that time of the year again where people who do not put together how the #FUR on their #UGGs or #FurJacket etc gets to be.
Trust me there is no magical way it happens whatsoever.
It is a #Gruesome act of #Violence and #Enslavement / #Death to make unnecessary trinkets under the guise of " #Fashion "
Convenience versus necessity.
Are you an #Inuit#Tribe living in a remote area of the world? No?
Then guess what.
See someone wearing it?
Maybe offer to show them #YouTube videos of #FurFarm s .
Some literally do not know the horrors involved in what they are supporting.
#RobBanks ⬅ is also a powerhouse of information!
