(Museum)
The Museum is dedicated to advancing knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of Northern culture and history with an emphasis on the Canadian Inuit. The Museum had its origins in 1944 when Roman Catholic missionaries from the order of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate recognized the value of preserving “carvings” representative of the culture of the people of the North. The exhibit now includes historic and contemporary sculptures of stone, bone, and ivory, as well as archaeological and wildlife specimens.
