  1. We have something similar here in Arctic Bay, only difference they are made out of seal fur (but I have no idea what they are called though, I’ll have to find out).

  2. I think Ookpiks are common around Canada…not sure where they are from, but a lot of people seem to make them! Douglas Coupland’s movie “souvenir of Canada,” says they were selected as an icon of Canada in the 1970s, now everyone makes them..
