Ulu making workshop with Mina Campbell
As a part of Spirit Song 2022, Mina Campbell was invited to do a residency at Eastern Edge. In the studio Mina instructed a small group of 4 on how to make an Ulu. Mina Campbell is an Inuk woman from North West River, Labrador. She has worked as the curator of the Labrador Interpretation Centre, a cultural centre representing Labrador’s cultures, since 1998. Campbell was raised by her grandparents, who instilled in her their traditional heritage and lifestyle. Campbell practises many traditional hunting, fishing and land-based activities, and she is interested in teaching and passing on her skills while continuing to learn more.
