Welcome the Sun

On a weekend sometime the second week of February, the community members of Pangnirtung collected together at the mouth of the Kuliq river across the fjord to celebrate the return of the sun. Long awaited, in the brief few hours of sunlight - light not yet reaching our village on the other side - we enjoyed the company of our fellow northerners, shared food, tea and bannock. Markus and I skied across the fjord to join in the festivities.
