Aboriginal Art and Anime

A brief comparison and history of two Art forms (Inuit and Anime)




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The history of the Thule was interesting because it demonstrated the skill and talent of past Inuit Artists. Also, how Anime grew so quickly in popularity over the years.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned that Art has been a big part and influence on the way of life,not only for the Inuit people but for all people. Art is great medium for expressing who we are as Canadian people and sharing our story with others.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I believe life was harder for people in the past. However, they were highly creative and made amazing art out of what little they had... Today, we are fortunate to have many art forms and supplies provided to express our creativity.
