Raised by 44 people in 9 months
In 2019, the Arctic Return Expedition will leave Naujaat (Repulse Bay) in Nunavut and embark upon a 650 km trek across Boothia Peninsula to Rae Strait. The route will be the same taken by Orcadian explorer John Rae in 1854 with William Ouligbuck and Thomas Mistegan, his Indigenous companions. Travelling on skis and snowshoes, the Arctic Return Expedition will pay tribute to, celebrate and honour Rae, one of the greatest explorers who ever lived.
Much like another great explorer, Roald Amundsen, Rae’s success was due in large part to his willingness to learn from the Indigenous people and culture of the region he explored. Rae travelled with patience, humility, respect and honesty. It was during his 1854 expedition that Rae and his companions discovered the final link to the first navigable Northwest Passage.
