Resolute Bay Cemeteries

There are two cemeteries outside of town, wherein mostly Inuit residents are interred. Both, as well as an early Thule memorial site, are adjacent to the hamlet’s dump which - to some - tellingly reflects the dark side of Resolute’s and other high arctic settlements history. In short, Canada compelled Inuit settlement of a few places scattered around the far north in order to establish Canadian dominion over the area.
