Ulukhaktok, in the heart of the Amundsen Gulf
Ulukhaktok is an Inuit village located north of the Arctic Circle, on the west coast of Victoria Island, in the sea bays of the Amundsen Gulf. A Hudson's Bay Company trading post, the village was renamed 'Holman' in the 19th century, before reverting in 2006 to its original name meaning 'where the materials to make the ulu are found ' namely copper to make the traditional Inuit knives. With a population of 398, the hamlet is famous for its Inuit print artists and for its 3-day uninterrupted golf tournament in July.
