Prior to the opening of the arts festival all of the materials were assembled, and suitable lumber was then processed into qayaq making parts. Specific parts were constructed by Mark before he headed north.
The project is running smoothly. There are several local youth engaged in this workshop, with four Inuvialuit youth. Many visitors of the both the festival and Inuvik are having the opportunity to join us on this.
Check in again soon to see our progress.
