This blanket toss sculpture represents and captures joy and community. The blanket toss has been used for over 100 years by the Inuit people. Seal or walrus skin would be used to make a human powered trampoline to launch a person up to 20 feet in the air to gain more visibility of the horizon for hunting! This speaks to the resourcefulness and ingenuity of the Inuit people. Now, the blanket toss is a cherished tradition and celebration. There are even competitions with tricks and flips.
