Jacko & Rodney Merkuratsuk, Nain

Jacko works with Parks Canada in Nain and helped develop the Torngat Mountains National Park. Here he is with his son, Rodney, as they explore ancient Inuit dwellings on Rose Island in Saglek Bay.

Reconnecting with his parent’s traditional homeland is important to him and he is looking forward to getting back north. No matter what the season travelling north always has it’s challenges. “Every year is different. Ice is very bad this year. Big seas since early January have the ice all broken up.”
