Then work in three different art forms working with professional artists to create art inspired by the Inuit people who have inhabited these regions for thousands of years.  

Judy Geck shares artifacts and experiences gathered during her visits to Greenland. She discusses the Inuit way of life as hunters and their reliance on land and sea animals that inhabit the area, now challenged by global warming. Artist Julie Boada discusses the relationship of Indigenous people to animals, the respect animals must be shown, and the spiritual qualities animals are believed to possess. Then you choose your own personal “spirit animal”. Working with Boada, you create a cut-paper collage, incorporating your spirit animal into the scene.
