Qikiqtarjuaq...The Big Island

I spent the better part of the afternoon scanning some of my old pictures onto my laptop. I have a number of photos from communities I've taught in earlier in my career. I now have the bulk of one album scanned and I hope to scan more over the coming days, particularly pictures from my time in Qikiqtarjuaq and Fort Smith, NWT. I'm not sure how many photos I've amassed over the years. Several hundred I'm sure. I have something in the neighborhood of 12-13 albums altogether. As a small taste, here are a couple photos from springtime in Qikiqtarjuaq (Broughton Island), where I began teaching in Nunavut.
