The Caribou is the true Leader of the North; the presence of their massive herds across the arctic tundra a sign of plenty and prosperity for the Inuit and other Indigenous peoples who follow their migration closely for sustenance.
The caribou as a staple cannot be over emphasized; they are a source of food, medicine, toolmaking, fur & sinew for clothing and shelter. The leader of the four-legged in the north shares a lesson of resilience for us all; every part of the animal taking the ingenuity of Indigenous peoples to create a physical, cultural, ceremonial, utilitarian and artisanal source of strength. In the tundra nothing is wasted; everything deserves our gratitude and to be honoured.
