"I am an Inuk one whose ancestors sheltered in the winter igloo of the great arctic; One whose future is free like the wild animal of the artic spirit. I am an Inuk who was given a place in the tundra so I could remember the cold winter darkness and the bright spring day. I am Inuk and I know that my heart is free to go where all animals are free". -Simionie Kunner Survival from the harsh environment and attaining food were primary concerns of the all Inuit peoples living in the harsh northern lands. Inuits did not solely rely on life skills such as hunting for survival, but they observed certain taboos, which aided them to live in the right relationship with their environment, especially with animals and spirit beings. The Inuit worldview is strongly influenced by the relationship between humans and animals. Animals not only provided food through their flesh, but they provided fur for parkas, sinew as thread, water-resistant boots from seal skin and antlers, bones to create hunting weapons. So intimate is the relationship between human and animal that Inuit mythology told of a time when human could become an animal and an animal could become a human. In order to receive these animals and hunt them, humans would have to be careful and respect the animals Inua- Its life essence. It was believed that animals gave themselves to the hunters, and failure to follow strict taboos would result in a shortage of animals, as the soul of the offended would inform others and they would refuse to be caught. The land is an old friend for the Inuit people and it lays on a sensitive balance beam made out of respect and spiritual observance. It is consistently dipping into two worlds, that of human and spiritual. This exhibition depicts interactions between human and spiritual beings as well as representations that show the respect and connection forged between humans and animals for mutual survival.
