A walk in the park in Iqaluit

Rhoda Ungalaq, centre, leads a group of people on an educational Arctic plant walk through sunny Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park in Iqaluit on Tuesday afternoon. Ungalaq showed participants how to identify some of the many plants and berries found at the park, such as crowberries, saxifrage and Labrador tea, and shared how Inuit use them for different medicinal and culinary purposes. The plant walk was one of the park’s “Learn To…” events, a series of cultural activities hosted at Nunavut’s territorial parks in Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet and Kugluktuk throughout the summer. Thursday’s event at Sylvia Grinnell park, called How to Light a Qulliq, starts at 1:30 p.m. (Photo by Madalyn Howitt)
