Fuel for the Day

{{cree_title}}

In my culture, strength comes from the sea. It gives us food... and art!

The sea provides us with so much. In this case, a Breakfast of Champions! This seal meat was our only meal of the day, and it sustained us while we walked for miles in search of food for our family. When the meat is raw, we call it "mikigaq". When we cut it up and place it in a pot, we say that we've made some "uugi" or "uugiliuqtunga". When the meat has been cooked, we call it "uujuq".
