Rankin Inlet is the second largest community in the Province of Nunavut in Canada. The key government, transportation, and communications hub for the people of this unique area of Canada, is located on the west coast of Hudson Bay.
Rankin Inlet has developed a strong fishing and Inuit craft industry. After struggling with the collapse of the Nickel Mine, Rankin Inlet founded an extensive tour and adventure enterprise.
Exceptionally rewarding to explore, but not easy to get around, the landscapes of this area are full of expansive ice fields and flower-filled tundra. The access is primarily via air since the entire region has just 21 km of highway. With its cultural ties and incredible history passed on through art, song, and storytelling, the people of Rankin Inlet will ensure a fascinating travel experience.
Our growing collection consists largely of local Inuit arts and crafts from the seven Kivalliq communities.
