The new millennium has seen the revival and celebration of our traditional culture and clothing.  Our young people find pride in their history, and use their Inuinnait identity to ground themselves on the global stage. They are once again hungry for the traditions that have sustained our people for so long.

The parkas of today speak to the ability of Inuinnait culture to adapt new materials to age-old values. Parkas are often bright with colours not seen on our landscape, and stitched from synthetic materials and foreign fabrics. The foundation of our culture is still visible in the cut of the clothing and the intricate designs used to adorn them. Fur trim continues to keep us warm while out on the land. Perhaps most importantly parkas are still sewn by Inuinnait, with memories of family and loved ones woven into every stitch.
