  • Sikuliaviniq - Ice Watch Word of the Week 5

    uploaded by: SIKU

    channel: SIKU

    Once sikuliaq freezes up enough so that it is thicker and no longer wavy, it is called sikuliaviniq or tuvaruaq. Using a harpoon, it can be walked on and when it gets thicker sometimes can support a skidoo.

  • Sikuliaq - Ice Watch Word of the Week 4

    uploaded by: SIKU

    channel: SIKU

    The Ice Watch Word of the Week is Sikuliaq (Sikuliak, Hikuliaq, Hikulihaaq).

    Sikuliaq, or young ice, forms as sikuaq freezes up and gets thicker and harder. It no longer looks grey and can have some snow on top. It can be strong enough to support some animals but not always thick enough to support a person walking on it. siku.org/app#/map/browse/ice/37
