When I think about what it is that draws me to Inuit art, the Inuit poem “Magic Words” comes to mind. For me, this poem captures the essence of Inuit art: the relationship the Inuit have with the natural world, and their stories—or magic words—about this world. Art, myth, and nature merge together, taking us back to that original state in which we once again share our world with the animals, and can even trade places with them. It is a place where we all speak the same language, where stories come alive in stone.
