Inuit Storytellers

Photo of an arctic town and InukshukThe arctic and near arctic are areas of Canada that have unique challenges because of environmental and geographical conditions. Indigenous to these areas are the Inuit, a very special people who are similar to other indigenous people in parts of Russia, Siberia, and Greenland. The ingenuity, resourcefulness and resiliance of the Inuit are legendary, and embodied in internationally recognized symbols such as the Inukshuk, the Kayak, the Ulu, the Igloo and the Parka.

We are fortunate enough to have been able to listen to and record the following Inuit storytellers. By clicking on their names, you can view their biographies and the stories that they have contributed to this website.
