Akulivik 2011

A beautiful small Inuit community on the Hudson Bay coast. We had so much fun here ! I was so impressed by the small group of Inuit boys who decided to dye their hair different colors. This was so new and exiting for them as they had just got colors for hair in at the co-op. I remember what this felt life as a child myself -wanting to stand out and be different than my parents ! I think its a healthy thing and doesn’t mean you have forgotten your family’s history or culture. We need to give youth creative space to explore their new modern identity so they can also be proud of their past.
