Wanda’s sewing: Mittens, mukluks and parka

Here’s Wanda McLeod the host of CBC’s Northwind. She’s holding mittens, mukluks and a hand-embroidered jacket she made at the Gwich’in-organized sewing classes in Inuvik.

Congratulations Wanda, and nice work!


Snowsuit on display in Tuktoyaktuk

This display case at Mangilaluk school shows what a child would have worn in the traditional Inuviauit tradition.

Surely this coat would be more than warm enough for the arctic winters. Notice the fishing spear to the left.
