Pangnirtung is home to some of the most accomplished Inuit carvers in the Arctic. As a whole, Pangnirtung's community of carvers is comprised of a full range of artists at various stages of development and recognition, including internationally recognized names as well lesser known artists and crafts people. Some of the carvers specialize in traditional or serpentine soapstone; others specialize in antler and ivory - all indigenous materials that are by-products of the traditional Inuit way of life. Further information about carvers, their work and how to purchase carvings can be obtained by contacting the Uqqurmiut Centre for Arts & Crafts.
