Volume Of Inuit Throat-Singing Rising In Canada

“Traditionally, Inuit women would throat-sing to entertain themselves and their children when the men were off hunting. Like many other centuries-old Inuit games and traditions such as drum-dancing and ice-hopping, it was discouraged and sometimes banned in the Central and Eastern Arctic when missionaries arrived in the early 1900s. … However, many young Inuit in communities around the Arctic are proudly reclaiming these fledgling arts as a way to connect with their past and with nature.”
