The hotel is the yellow building on the left. About a five minute walk. Not dangerous now but in the winter there are often polar bears around the hotel building. This community has about 250 Inuit residents and is a transportation hub for the High Arctic. There is evidence of Dorset and Thule Inuit here from 1500 BC until about 1000 AD. But it had been abandoned until the forced relocation in 1953. Families were moved here and to Grise Fiord from Inukjuak in Quebec. Totally different terrain, hunting patterns and well above the Arctic Circle. The Inuit who came were told they could return south after a year, but that offer was withdrawn, and they were forced to stay for over twenty years. Not a proud part of our history.
