A young man from Clyde River learns how to carve a seal this spring outside the North Baffin community as part of a program for young men and boys run by the Ilisaqsivik Society. The six-week program involved elders taking youth on the land to learn hunting, travelling and survival skills. The Ilisaqsivik Society, which runs programs year-round for all members of the community from youth to elders, offered this on-the-land program for male youth with help from the Qaujigiartiit Health Centre in Iqaluit.
