Queen Elizabeth II (right), Prince Charles (The Prince of Wales

Queen Elizabeth II (right), Prince Charles (The Prince of Wales) and his sister Princess Anne (left) pictured during a visit to Tuktoyaktuk, an Inuvialuit hamlet located in the Inuvik Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada, in July 1970.
In 2017 Tuktoyaktuk, population 898, was considered possibly the last Arctic village in Canada. The 137km Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway was constructed to link the village with the mainland, a vital new lifeline across spartan tundra. This new roadway kept alive a window into an almost forgotten way of indigenous life, but also had commercial reasons for being built. In 2019 Northern Canada is suffering the effects of climate change with melting ice and snow, with nearby areas like Nunavut under threat.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a momentous visit by Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles (The Prince of Wales), and Princess Anne to the remote Inuvialuit hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk in Canada's Northwest Territories. Taken in July 1970, this image holds historical significance as it showcases the royal family's exploration of an Arctic village that would later become one of the last remaining ones in Canada. Fast forward to 2017, when Tuktoyaktuk faced an uncertain future due to climate change. With melting ice and snow threatening nearby regions like Nunavut, this photograph serves as a poignant reminder of how environmental challenges have impacted Northern Canada over time. In response to these changes, the construction of the Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway became a lifeline for the village. Spanning 137 kilometers across rugged tundra, this vital roadway not only preserved access to traditional indigenous ways of life but also had commercial implications. As we reflect on this picture from July 8th, 1970, taken by Reed O. B. E. , Freddie, we are reminded not only of royalty visiting distant lands but also of humanity's interconnectedness with nature. The image evokes feelings of admiration for those who adapt and persevere amidst changing climates while serving as a call-to-action for preserving our fragile environment for generations to come.
