Cape Dorset, Nunavut

Sort by:

dorset.jpg Cape Dorset (or Kinngait) is located on Dorset Island at the southern tip of Baffin Island in the Qikiqtaaluk Region of Nunavut. Cape Dorset has been regarded as the capital of Inuit art since the 1950s, with the Kinngait Co-op as its artistic centre today. Printmaking and carving are the community's main economic activities, as over 20% of the workforce is currently employed in the arts. Cape Dorset carvers are predominantly known from their naturalistic representations of animals and legends. The artists of this region favour a dark black or green serpentine, which they carve and polish with great detail and elegance. For more information, see Inuit Communities.
