These beautiful illustrations are from the Meeka Project, a four-part set of culturally relevant wellness resources that take a holistic approach to Inuit healing, healthy living, child rearing and teamwork through illustrations and exercises that evoke traditional stories. Released in December 2010, the Meeka series was produced in partnership with Tungasuvvingat Inuit and the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. (For more information follow this link.)

These illustrations are a wonderful depiction of Inuit culture and our lifestyle in Nunavut. Thank you!
