Page from a Sketchbook
“They finally arrived in the winter and they had repented, so they are praying to God every night.
After the Inuit arrived in Kuujjuaraapik, they were praying every night and they were fed food that cost nothing.
Their clothes were made out of goose hide, sealskin, caribou skin, dog skin.”
