Memories of Umingmaktok

On Leg 10, we had the wonderful opportunity to visit beautiful Umingmaktok, an outpost in the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut. The visit was particularly emotional for our participant Pamela Gross. Pamela’s family grew up in Umingmaktok and she spent part of each year there as a child, but hasn’t returned since she was eight years old. Learn more about our visit in our new video.

Our photographer Natta Summerky documented the visit to Umingmaktok as well. See her images of a lost childhood in this abandoned community.
