Canada is a Northern Nation. Canada's Arctic makes up over 40% of our landmass and is home to more than 100,000 Canadians. It is an essential part of our national identity and it is vital to our future. Come explore the history, art, landscape and contemporary issues affecting the people of the North. Dawn Bazely talks about a unique book, Inuvialuit Nautchiangit: Relationships Between People and Plants, written by ethnobotanist Robert Bandringa and Inuvialuit elders. Humans depend on plants for oxygen, food, shelter, tools and more. Northern peoples extend that reliance to meet medical, religious, and cultural needs.
