Photos that I took in Resolute Bay, Nunavut during the Northern Experience Program with the Canadian Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Change in April 2009.

"Resolute is not the end of the world, but you can see it from here…"

Resolute Bay is the second most northern settlement in Canada, and its Inuktitut name, Qausuittuq, means “the place with no dawn.” The population is under 300 people.

I was fortunate enough to meet many of the local elders, and to hear them speak about the impacts of the 1953 High Arctic Relocation by the Canadian Government. A few of them can be seen in "Exile," an IsumaTV production about the High Arctic Relocation.
