About the Author:

John MacDonald lives in Igloolik, North West Territories, where he manages the Igloolik Research Centre for the Nunavut Research Institute. Over the past decade, in collaboration with the Inuit elders of Igloolik, he has been closely involved in the collection and documentation of the area's oral history and traditional knowledge. The Arctic Sky stems primarily from this collaborative work.
