Ookpik [Inuktitut, "snowy" or "Arctic owl"] is the name of one of the most popular of Inuit handicrafts, a souvenir sealskin owl with large head and big eyes. The appealing figure was created at the Ft Chimo Eskimo Co-operative in Québec in 1963, and it has become a symbol by which Canadian handicrafts are identified around the world.
