The Kitikmeot Heritage Society has environmentally controlled storage spaces for its archive and material collections. As the KHS is not an organization dedicated to collecting artifacts, it limits the type and amount of artifacts it accepts into its collection. As storage space is limited, many of our exhibited collections are on long-term loan from other museums. Much of the Kitikmeot Heritage Society’s collection does not consist of material objects. We also collect local knowledge about Inuit customs, oral history, dance, music, and traditional skills. Knowledge about these subjects is preserved in the memories and stories of local elders, which we document and store in our archives in the form of audio and visual recordings, books, written interviews, and film documentaries.
This section is used to showcase exhibits both owned by the Kitikmeot Heritage Society and on loan from other organizations.
