Cape Dorset, also known as Kinngait (pronounced “King-ite”) for its high, rolling hills, is a thriving Inuit community on the southwest coast of Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic territory of Nunavut. The West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative was formed and incorporated there in 1959. The Kinngait Studios, which house the co-operative’s graphic arts program, are the longest continually running print studios in Canada. The studios are internationally renowned for excellence and innovation in Inuit graphic art.
