Teaching Photos

=== by Bob Sutherland ===

This is my collection of photographs of some of the remote villages, First Nation, Metis and Inuit communities where I have taught in northern Canada. Most of the photos were taken by myself but some were taken by my teaching colleagues and students. I still have a lot of work to do restoring old film and digital photographs to add to this collection.

My photos are available in two sizes.

Coppermine = Kugluktuk

This Inuit community is located along the Arctic Ocean coastline beside the mouth of the Coppermine River. The community was formerly known as Coppermine when it was part of the Northwest Territories. I taught in this community during the 1996-1997 school year as preparations were underway to create the new territory of Nunavut.
