Igloolik is located on a small island in Foxe Basin, just off Melville
Peninsula on the mainland of Nunavut. Although Igloolik is part of the Qikiqtani or Baffin region, there exists a mix of Inuit cultural traditions from each of the three regions.

Igloolik is a community that balances modern living with a
traditional way of life. This balance is illustrated by Isuma
Production’s Atanarjuat, the award winning movie based on
traditional legend.
