"Nuiyak School offers a regular K-12 school program similar to all of our schools in
Nunavut but also offers many hands-on programs such as media and technology,
construction, taxidermy and extra curricular activities. They host the community
museum and promote an environment within the school that is relaxed and supportive to
students. They have a high respect for Inuit culture and language and this is visible
throughout the school. Specific activities include renovating and constructing a duplex,
doing taxidermy work, making polar bear rugs and full sized wolves and foxes, designing
jewelry in wax and having them cast into sterling silver, screen printing garments,
creating object boxes for mounting cultural objects and doing archaeological castings of
significant Inuit prehistoric artifacts."
Great pictures and thank you for the information about the school life up there. Greetings from Utah, USA!
