Hooks and barbs

These antler and bone fishing tools are displayed in Inuvik's Inuvialuit Cultural Resource Centre.

It's a mini museum and library which preserves traditional culture, and should definitely be visited by anyone coming through Inuvik.

Look at the ages listed on the bone hooks! It's uncanny!

Also interesting is the inclusion of a "labret piercing," to be worn through a man's cheek.
