Bob Konana

Inuit

Gjoa Haven, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1938-2013)


The Gjoa, the ship with which Roald Amundsen made the first successful traverse of the Northwest Passage, and which gave their community its name. The Gjoa, which was iced in from 1903 to 1905 at the harbour site Inuit call Uqsuqtuuq, now resides at the Norwegian Maritime Museum in Oslo.

One of the elders, Bob Konana is a grandson of Amundsen. When asked if he would travel with the students to Norway, he simply said, “I’ve always wanted to go to there.”
