Students ate raw frozen caribou meat cut off the slab with an ulu. Touched caribou, fox, and seal fur. Tried on snow goggles made from antler and played a traditional bone game. They also got to listen to our visitors and classmate speak Inuktitut.
If you are on their website and go to the events page, you will find a calendar of events. Events are free and open to everyone. Starting in January they are teaching how to make parkas. You are able to keep what you make. An interesting opportunity for your student to learn and share in their friend's culture.
He will be leaving us before the break to attend a new school but could be back at St Anne again next year. He has exchanged phone numbers with many students in the class already and if you're interested in going over to Tungasuvvingat, then give him a call and see if he can meet you there.
