Where are you from?

We’re from Etobicoke and Markham, ON.

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

It’s our first time to the museum, we came because we really wanted to  see Inuit art.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

Rasheed: I love the playfullness of the dancing bear.

Jamie: I love the balance of the bird.
