Joe Mucpa sits on a qamutik at the Hamlet of Pond Inlet’s department of public works building on Nov. 27. David Suqslak and Matthias Kaunak spent nine days teaching eight Pond Inlet residents between the ages of 16 and 35 how to build qamutiks. The group finished its eighth qamutik on Dec. 1, and one of those eight will be given away by the hamlet as a Christmas present to a community member by random draw. The workshop was funded by the Canadian government’s New Horizons for Seniors program, and Theresa Dalueg, hamlet recreation coordinator, hopes to run more in the future. (Photo by David Suqslak)

    I would enjoy seeing a video of this craft procedure so I can understand it more. As a woodworker I am always interested in natural and ethnic crafts.
