Kamiks of the Inuit. "Because of the environment we live in, kamiks are the most suitable footwear. They are one of the most important parts of clothing for survival out on the land. Kamiks are part of our identity. They are part of our culture and environment." Sarah Ovatuatia Philip of Iqaluit, Northwest Territories
