I spent 5 years living on Baffin Island - in Cape Dorset, Pond Inlet, Clyde River,Pangnirtung and Kimmirut. 12 years total in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. Baffin is fantastic,
most people still talk Inuktitut and many communities are still fairly traditional.
I have thousands of pics from up there - here are just a few.

Yes Wayno, Caribou fur.
The ruffs around the hoods are made from wolverine and wolf.
My mitts are ringed seal, and Kammiks( boots) are Polar bear.
