19-26 August 2023: Morgan visits Qaanaaq, North Greenland


Morgan Ip visited Qaanaaq in August 2023, as part of the team’s research in Greenland.

Qaanaaq is the closest community today to Smith Sound, a key site of research interest for the Arctic Cultures project.  Morgan visited the Qaanaaq museum in Knud Rasmussen’s old house, which was moved from the old community location. The exhibition contains a piece of the Cape York meteorite, archeological artifacts, objects related to the series of expeditions to the area, and an ethnographic collection.
