Fish hooks

These fish hooks were created between 1860 and 1925. They were found at Kekerten Whaling Station on Kekerten Island in Cumberland Sound by archaeologist Marc Stevenson at a site designated Borden Number

Fish hooks would have been produced to different kinds and sizes of fish.

Fishing was a way of providing variety to the diet and was carried out in every season.

Inuit always considered every possible application for any new article or material.
