The return of the sun: a celebration of sunlight and identity

The dark winter months are over in Grise Fiord and so the local school, the center of the community, have organised a celebration of the sun with a performance of traditional throat singing

Return of the Sun Celebration


The end of winter is a time of great celebration in Grise Fiord and the Arctic as it marks an end to the months of living in total darkness. Soon, the community will begin enjoying 24 hours of sunlight.
