The Village of Kangiqsujuaq is in the far northern Quebec territory of Nunavik, home to Canada's Inuit people. Surviving in the harsh northern climate far above the tree line, survival depends upon food that can be hunted or collected. On this unique bay there is there is a tradition in the winter months of collective mussels under the sea ice when the moon is full and the tides are strong. Only some in the community today still practice the activity, with many too fearful of climbing under the ice for the brief minutes that it's not filled with water, some speak of myths when the ice collapsed killing those below. I ventured below for a story for The New York Times, and for a meal of the best mussels I have ever had.
