Notes from DaVic Gallery:  ‘Hunting by Boat Near Uttuusivik’ – Some Inuit names are quiet amusing: near Iglook is a lake called Tasilugjuak, which translates to “Big Lake Having Little Purpose.” Some are robust: one island with very little vegetation or moss is called Iquutiksaqtaittuq, meaning “there is nothing to wipe your arse with.”  One camp was called Uttuusivik, “Vagina Place.”  There are several stories of how this place got its name, including one where men of the community were carried out to see on moving ice; another where the men were killed; another where the men had gone inland to hunt caribou. Whatever the cause, the result was that the community was long occupied only by women.
