Kangiqsujuaq is a small village in Ungava Bay in Canadas arctic north. When the ocean retracts during low
tide it leaves hundreds of caves under the pack ice. It is here that the Inutit will find mussels, which used
to be an important source of food during the long arctic winters. To collect them, one has to dig a hole 9 feet
deep through the ice. An extremely dangerous venture, as no where else on this planet the tide comes in as fast as here, at 25 miles per hour and the ice is getting increasingly instable due to global warming.
