10 Stunning Photos Snapped by Inuit of Their Homeland

Northern Canada has long held mystique for those of us who do not live there. Its ethereal aurora borealis, ice-dwelling sea creatures and otherwordly landscapes both entice and intimidate us.  The region’s inhabitants, the Inuit, have been there for thousands of years and know the terrain better than anyone.

Thanks to the Internet, the land claims agreement and digital technology, glimpses of these ancient scenes can now be delivered to the rest of us.

The Inuit land claims organization Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. sponsors a monthly photo contest that welcomes submissions from anyone enrolled under the treaty that created the territory of Nunavut. Every year since 2006 there has been an annual winner, and most months there are multiple submissions, and a monthly winner as well.

Here are 10 of the standouts for 2017, starring Mother Earth at her most majestic, with some others covered previously referenced below.
