The Qulittaq Project had eight students and began January 20, 2017, ending on February 18, 2017. The group met 4-5 times a week at the Nunavut Arctic College in Naujaat. This project was administered as a Community Initiative Program. The two instructors did an amazing job teaching the participants to prepare and sew Caribou clothing. Many thanks to the instructors and students for participating!
