For thousands of years, Inuit people have marked themselves with tattoos. While designs and meanings vary, tattoos remain a vital part of the culture. But a century ago, the tradition was nearly lost when missionaries came to Inuit communities and began colonizing. Now, artist Marjorie Tahbone is intent on reawakening this ancient art using the traditional techniques of her native people.
This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
