The Hidden Face of Qajartalik
With Jimmy Uqittuq and Louis Gagnon
Wed. Nov. 13 at 6 pm
In December 2017, the Qajartalik site (JhEv-1) was added to the short indicative list of places proposed by Canada as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Qajartalik is a unique multi-component archaeological site that includes over 175 petroglyphs. The site is located about 45 kilometers south east of the Inuit community of Kangiqsujuaq (Nunavik), in the Hudson Strait. Jimmy Uqittuq from Kangiqsujuaq and Louis Gagnon, curator at Avataq Cultural Institute, will talk about the history of the site and their visits to Qajartalik since in 1996. They will present a selection of photos of these petroglyphs that depict faces engraved into stone, which in some cases they have animal-like attributes.
