Nunatta Sunakkutaangit

The Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum located in Iqualuit, Nunavut features a permanent collection of Inuit artifacts as well as a gallery showcasing artists from across the north. 

The word "Nunatta" translates to "Things from the Land."   The jewellery and small scale sculptures often depict forms integral to the local culture and are made with traditional materials such as muskox horn, walrus tusks or teeth, caribou antler, and ivory.
