Unikkaaqatigiit

Arctic Weather and Climate Through the Eyes of Nunavut’s Children

Unikkaaqatigiit

Compiled from writing, poetry, and illustrations created by young Nunavummiut, this anthology explores diverse aspects of the theme of weather—from Inuit mythology to traditional knowledge, climate change, and daily survival.

These creative works, created as part of an Arctic Weather Centre contest in the mid-1990s, are gathered here for the first time, and are accompanied by helpful information about each community represented.

Through full-colour illustrations and engaging poetry and stories written both in Inuktitut and English, learn more about the vital force of Arctic weather as seen through the eyes of children.

Edited by David Natcher, Mary Ellen Thomas, and Neil Christopher
