"Art from the Arctic: Inuit Prints and Sculpture" (11/20/09-2/14/10) exhibition label text:

Many migratory birds visit the Arctic but a few like the raven and ptarmigan are year round residents. The snowy owl migrates as necessary when food is scarce. Birds, especially owls and ravens, are very popular in Inuit mythology and for shamans on their journeys to the spirit world.
