The creation and uses of dolls made by the Inuit women of Nunavut.
The women of the Kivalliq region of Nunavut have created dolls for centuries, each with their own technique and purpose. Since the creation of Nunavut, a resurgence in traditional arts and crafts has emerged. Dolls are no exception. They are utilized to relate oral stories and legends and to provide opportunities for intergenerational teaching of traditional sewing and beading. This book illustrates each of the doll-makers, their dolls and explores how they pursue a unique cultural identity within a changing world.
