Pangnirtung // Panniqtuuq PLACE OF BULL CARIBOU Pangnirtung’s mountain terrain and fjord setting mark the southern starting point for hikers who are en route to Auyuittuq National Park. Pangnirtung is internationally known for its dark green serpentine stone and whale bone used in carvings plus its tapestries and woven accessories such as the ‘Pang Hat’. Print collections were produced annually from 1970 to 2008, and intermittently since then. All these art forms are practised at the local Uqqurmiut Centre.
