Akuluk is not very excited about visiting Nunavut for her vacation. She would rather head south for summer vacation, somewhere with roller coasters and cotton candy.
But as soon as she steps off the plane and sees all the exciting animals that the tundra has to offer, Akuluk forgets all about her dreams of going south. On her first full day in Nunavut, she can’t wait to travel out on the land with her grandparents to hunt for wild eggs.
As she learns about the different types of eggs, how to collect them properly, and the delicious ways that they can be prepared, Akuluk knows that this is just the beginning of the exciting things she’ll learn!
