     People in Inuvik have been dancing in Ingamo Hall since 1965. Back then it was only the Hudson’s Bay warehouse, a multi-coloured plywood structure.
The name “Ingamo” is actually a misspelling of the word “Indemo” a word coined from the Indian-Eskimo Association – a group responsible for initiating the idea of a Hall.
In 1974 when the old Hall needed replacing the idea of a log structure emerged. Over
one thousand logs were floated down the Mackenzie River from Fort Simpson. The 7,904 square foot structure was completed in 1979.
Today the Hall is used for Friendship Centre programming staff, work-shops, meetings, feasts, craft sales, drum dancing, art shows and many other activities.
