Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Kigusiuq draws inspiration for ‘Travelling with Dog Teams‘ from her own experiences living on the land as a young woman, and she typically depicts communal activities from traditional Inuit lifestyle. Winter camp scenes, groups traveling on the land by foot or dog team. Married as a very young woman, Kigusiuq remembers travelling on the land and following the Arctic game animals in order to survive. Those families with dog teams were able to carry family members or bags while those with no dog teams had to walk and carry their own bags.
