Holman Prints and Textiles Exhibit

Ulukhaktok, known until 2006 as Holman, is a small hamlet on the west coast of Victoria Island, in the Inuvik Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. The hamlet is famous as the home of Holman Eskimo Co-operative (formed in 1961), which sells Inuit prints around the world. The Inuit were first taught to make prints by Father Henri Tardy, an Oblate who settled in the area in 1948.
