“This is my daughter Katelyn Panimiran Tanuyak. She loves to go out hunting, and she caught her first umingmak in summer 2017 near Chesterfield Inlet.”

“As summer in Nunavut comes to an end, the sun sets earlier and earlier. The nights are cooler. This is the time to go to the stone weir. In the cold rushing river, the weir is built by using rocks. Much like their grandfathers, the men stand on the riverbanks watching for any ripple and movement that shows the school of fish arriving. Once they arrive all the men run out to try their luck. This fish was caught in late August by Norman and the kakivak. It made a delicious dinner and provided some good memories as he followed the fishing traditions of his ancestors.
“This photo of my husband Norman was taken on the banks of the Diane River near Rankin Inlet in August 2016.”
