Exploring into the Inuit culture

Link to first video

In this video, students from the Nunavut  community are dressed up in Inuit clothing. They will be singing, while there are two people playing the drums, as the beat of the song. While this is going on, there will also be 2 mascots walking people into the festival. This is just a song the people are presenting to show as appreciation.

The title of this video is “Canada Winter Festival; Inuit’s traditional singing and drumming”.

In this video, there are people in the background also dressed up in Inuit clothing. This time they are not singing, but chanting something in their language and clapping their hands to the beat of the dance that the two performers are doing. The dance is done in a fast motion while touching the heel of the foot, shoulder, and head.
