Ulukhaktok Traditions

Music and dance are an important part of life in Ulukaktok. Songs tell stories of:

  • hunting
  • dancing
  • travelling

The songs are passed from generation to generation. The most common songs are:

  • Aya-ya songs
  • chanting
  • story songs

The singers sing to the rhythm of the caribou skin drums. Dancers act out the songs. Sometimes the dancers play drums and dance.

Dancing, drumming and singing continues to be a vital part of life in Holman with regular performances at the community hall. The Holman drummers and dancers have also performed at ceremonies throughout the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
