Notes from DaVic Gallery:   “Kakjuaqlurmait ” – Because of widespread disease and famine in the hunting camps of the Barren Lands region, Mamnguksualuk and her family, like many Inuit, moved to Baker Lake in 1963.  Famine had always been a fact of life for Inuit people.  One of the worst episodes of starvation in the arctic occurred in the late 1940s and early 1950s, when a shift in caribou migration patterns caused widespread starvation in the southern interior of the Kivalliq Region to the west of Hudson Bay.  Today, hunger prevails in settlements for economic reasons.
