Mino-Niibi Fund Grants awarded: 2016, 2017 & 2018
We support cultural revitalization through the artistic tradition of Inuit facial and body tattooing with Inuit traditional and contemporary tattoo artists and photographers. Each tattoo and line possess specific cultural significance, and much of this knowledge is rapidly disappearing. This project includes women Elders and focuses on the empowerment of young women, the whole community, and feeding their passion to bring their cultural traditions back to life.
