Talk by Peter Irniq outside McNutt Hall
Peter Irniq, artist and former commissioner of Nunavut, spoke about the Inuksuk, or “likeness of a person,” that he created in the days leading up to the Our Land exhibition opening events. An Inuksuk is a stone figure that acts as a beacon for travelers in Canada’s north, symbolizing the strength, leadership, and motivation of the Inuit. Irniq built the Inuksuk on the lawn in front of McNutt Hall, which houses Dartmouth’s Admissions Office. Every spring and summer, thousands of high school students visit campus via McNutt as they contemplate finding their own way.
