Cape Dorset/Canada

Introducing Cape Dorset

Cape Dorset (population 1236), on the rocky shore of Baffin Island's Foxe Peninsula, is the epicenter of Inuit art. A half-century ago the residents here pioneered modern Arctic carving and printmaking, marketing it to the world with remarkable success.

The Mallikjuaq Park Visitor Centre has artifacts portraying the history of Cape Dorset and the Mallikjuaq Islands, and can help arrange a visit to the park.
