Pond Inlet

Pond Inlet is an Inuit hamlet located in the Qikiqtaaluk Region of Nunavut, Canada. It is located on the northern tip of Baffin Island, at the northern end of Frobisher Bay. It is one of the northernmost permanently inhabited communities in the world.

Pond Inlet was established as a trading post in the early 19th century and was originally known as "Tununirusiq" or "Tununirsuk" by the local Inuit. The area has been inhabited by Inuit for centuries and is the traditional homeland of the Inuit people. The Inuit have a rich cultural and spiritual history in the area, and the community is still home to many Inuit families.

The area is known for its stunning natural beauty. It is surrounded by mountains and glaciers and is home to a variety of wildlife, including caribou, polar bears, whales, and seals. The nearby waters of the Arctic Ocean are home to a wide variety of fish, and the area is known for its excellent fishing.

Pond Inlet is an important historical site for the Inuit. In 1818, the British explorer John Ross named the area "Pond Inlet" after his friend, the British Admiralty official Sir John Barrow. In the late 19th century, the area was the site of a failed attempt to establish a whaling station. In the early 20th century, the area was the site of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police post.

The community of Pond Inlet is home to a variety of services, including a health centre, a library, a school, and a community centre.
