Kuujjuaq kindergarten class learns to skin a caribou
“We did pretty good with the help of our students”
Kindergarten students at Pitakallak School in Kuujjuaq got a lesson in preparing a caribou on Jan. 15.
Led by teachers Ayaana and Kajuula Berthe, the students helped skin the caribou on a tarp laid out in their class. The caribou was hunted by the Berthe sisters’ grandfather and uncle, Simeonie and Simon Berthe, respectively.
In a Facebook post, Ayaana wrote that it’s practically their first time skinning a caribou without someone guiding them, but “we did pretty good with the help of our students.”
