To celebrate National Seal Products this Wednesday, May 20, the Toronto Inuit Association and our awesome group of Urban Inuit Organizations will be putting together a day of online workshops! The day will involve sealskin crafts, storytelling, learning about hunting and seal cuisine, and more. We can’t wait to celebrate one of our favourite animals, and an important part of the Inuit culture, economy, cuisine and livelihood with all of you!
4 of the 6 workshops / talks will be open to everyone, whereas the craft workshops are reserved for Indigenous and Inuit participants only. 2 will be taking place on Facebook live, on our page the Toronto Inuit Association, and the rest will take place on Zoom. Here is the schedule:
9:30am EDT : Labrador Hunting Stories with Mina Campbell, facebook live
