Notes from DaVic Gallery:  Towkie Karpik’s Oungavag Leading, provides a record of important period of cross-cultural contact when whales were hunted in the Cumberland Sound. Whale products were highly prized in Europe, and from the late 18th century until the 1930’s, trading ships came to the sound regularly in search of whales.  This hunting expedition is in the search or on their way to find whales.
