Ulukhaktok

Ulukhaktok (Holman), or Uluksaqtuuq, (meaning "place where one finds material to make ulus") is located on Victoria Island and is the most eastern Inuvialuit community. With a population of almost 500, Ulukhaktok also holds traditional ties with the Inuit of the central Arctic.

Culture is very much alive in the community with western and eastern-style drum dancing, throat singing and a unique style of printmaking. Many residents have artistic backgrounds and are involved with the Holman Eskimo Co-op in producing prints, tapestries, sewing and other crafts.

Ulukhaktok is also the home of the Billy Joss Open Golf Tournament, an annual event that is played on Canada's most northern course under the midnight sun.
