Canadian Landscapes

Few people have the opportunity to visit the Arctic in person. This Web site provides the opportunity to view some of the incredible landscape and landform features of the region through a series of photographs. To access these excellent images, select a region within the Arctic (the Innuitian, the Arctic Lowlands, and the Arctic Coastal Plains) and a keyword (optional) from the list of specific types of landforms.

Places of Power

The Inuit have always had a powerful relationship with the land. This Web site provides the opportunity to learn about their spirituals connections with the environment as viewed through inuksuit, the stone structures the Inuit have traditionally built across the Arctic. (Inuksuit is the plural of inuksuk.) Be sure to click on the illustrated box at the bottom right corner of the Web page to connect to a photographic display with descriptions on many different inuksuit across the Arctic.
