Inuit – Arviat & Rankin Inlet

Arviat is the southernmost community on the Nunavut mainland and is close to the geographical centre of Canada. In Arviat, Inuktitut and English are primarily spoken, having the third largest population in Nunavut, behind Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit. Hunting and fishing are very active in the community; they are the primary source of sustenance.  Arviat is well known around the Arctic for its artistic qualities. It is a thriving community with many talented artists.

Located on the northwestern Hudson Bay, between Chesterfield Inlet and Arviat, Rankin Inlet is the regional centre for the Kivalliq Region.  Rankin Inlet is not only notable for its artists and artisans, it is recognized as housing the only Inuit fine-arts ceramics production facility in the world. Many artists work in a variety of mediums including ceramics, prints, bronze castings, soapstonecarvings, watercolor and drawing.
