The Water Issue  

The relationship of Inuit to water flows through stories and oral tradition, a powerful entity to be treated with care and respect, even as forces like climate change transform the sea ice and affect water quality across Inuit Nunangat. Inuit continue to hunt, fish and travel across water to maintain traditional lifestyle and diets, using new technologies and making serious waves in Inuit art as they do so.

From the enduring stories of Joe Talirunili’s Joe Boats, to the shared waters of photographers Eldred Allen and Robert Kautuk and 18 artists who draw water in their work, the Water issue delves beneath the surface to the tides that travel beneath.
