What Canada's Arctic Can Teach Us

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

To most of the world, Canada's Arctic remains a mysterious land of exotic animals, cold temperatures and often misunderstood Indigenous cultures. Robert Feagan separates the myth from reality. Born while his father, a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, was stationed in the small Northern community of Fort McPherson, he recounts his experiences growing up in an Indigenous culture, close encounters with polar bear and muskox, climate change, food security, residential school, wellness and much more. This presentation is enhanced by the large collection of museum quality artifacts attendees can experience up close, including a seven foot long narwhal tusk, muskox head, bead work, carvings, walrus skull and tusks, snow glasses and much more.
