About Qaumajuq

Qaumajuq (KOW-MA-YOURK) means “it is bright, it is lit.” The name celebrates the new building connected to the WAG and its crucial role of shining a light on Inuit culture.

The exhibit holds close to 14,000 authentic Inuit pieces, including: rock/bone carvings, tapestries, clothing, paintings, pictures, sculptures, and dolls.

“Some say Inuit art is dying. I don’t think so. I think it’s going to stay forever. The only way it will die is if we run out of rock.”

– Natar Ungalaq
