Three elders from Igloolik are making inuujait ( inuit traditional dolls )  so that this skill is not forgotten. They also demonstrate the cultural changes that recent generations of Inuit went through in the last 100 years by creating three families of inuujait : an old time family living in a qarmaq, a family of the 50's and a contemporary family.

Susan Avingaq, the leader of the project created the inuujait of today.

Mary Qulitalik created the late 50's style inuujait and Rebecca Malliki created the traditional inuit dolls, clothed in furs.
