All smiles in pitsi workshop

Event part of Nunavut Parks’ weekly ‘Learn To…’ series

Haali Paton, centre, shows visitors to Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park in Iqaluit on Tuesday how to make pitsi. Sherry Nuliayuk, left, and Kethika Kulleperuma take in what Paton is saying as they try to gut their fish. Making pitsi, which is the Inuit method of drying a fish, is a part of Nunavut Parks’ ‘Learn To…’ series. “It’s a great opportunity to teach others [how to make pitsi],” Paton said of the workshop. Similar events are also held at Iqalugaarjuup Nunanga Territorial Park in Rankin Inlet and Kugluk Territorial Park in Kugluktuk. A full schedule of this year’s remaining events is on the Government of Nunavut website. (Photo by David Lochead)
