Development of the Arctic Gallery has been done in collaboration and consultation with indigenous people of the Far North. This includes artifacts or clothing, writing in three languages (one of which is an Inuit language), and panels that reflect "our story" as opposed to the traditional objective way of phrasing things. I like the decor around the gallery, which is colourful and often features wildlife.
Human beings have learned to live in the Far North, first the First Nations, and then those white people who came into the North for one reason or another. Adaptation was always called upon for them, either in clothing or tools needed to live in such an unforgiving place.
On my way out, I paused to photograph a display case with these birds, and then those slabs of ice again. The Arctic Gallery left me impressed.
