Fishin’ for compliments?

By far one of the most unexpected pieces of news in 2020 was about a cache of Inuit prints by Kinngait (Cape Dorset), NU, artists like Kenojuak Ashevak that were found in an old house. It’s
Happy belated Nunatsiavut Day to all the Nunatsiavimmiut out there!

Today we’re taking a moment to celebrate the major artistic output from the region with 10 Artists to Know, featuring early trailblazers like Gilbert Hay and emerging artists like Erica Jacque.

Happy National Indigenous History Month everyone! 

As we use this month to celebrate the history, heritage and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada, it seems only appropriate to look at the legacy left of Inuit in archival records across the world. 

Revisit @inuittapiriitkanatami president Natan Obed’s examination of the records to see what history has been remembered and forgotten, and stay tuned for more Inuit history, art and otherwise, coming your way this month!

**content warning: residential schools and abuse**

The IAF stands with survivors, Indigenous communities and all those affected by the ongoing legacies of the residential school system. Our thoughts are with the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation as we grieve the loss of the 215 children at the Kamloops Indian Residential School.

It is impossible for many of us to comprehend the lived experiences carried by residential school survivors, and what stories those who didn’t survive would tell. The residential school system continues to have widespread impacts on Indigenous people across Canada, including those in the North. We join the national calls for justice and in recognition of this tragedy will continue to pause our communications until Monday, June 7.

We stand beside and offer the following resources for support to Indigenous communities in this time of grief. If you or someone you know is struggling, please reach out for help.

The national crisis line for residential school survivors is 1-866-925-4419.
You can also contact the Indian Residential School Survivors Society toll-free at 1-800-721-0066.
BC First Nations and Indigenous peoples can also reach the KUU-US Crisis Line Society at 1-800-588-8717 or online at kuu-uscrisisline.com

Now is an important time for all settler Canadians and citizens of the world to read, reread and reflect on this history and the calls to action and justice that need to be fulfilled, as outlined in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Final Report published in 2015 and the Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls published in 2019.

“I’ve never been very athletic, but this sculpture reminds me of the time my friends and I joined our high school curling team just so we could appear to be well-rounded university candidates. We didn’t have the elegant form of the carved figures shown here, but certainly the blisters of stone from all that sweeping.” – Leanne Inuarak-Dall

Why is art important to you?

Meet Leslie! Leslie has been a monthly supporter of the IAF for several years. Her love of Inuit art began with early Inuit graphics and sculpture. Leslie says “My world of Inuit art – partly due to my membership to the Inuit Art Foundation and my subscription to the IAQ, has expanded and changed how I look at and think about works of art made by Inuit artists.”

If your understanding and appreciation of Inuit art has evolved because of reading new perspectives like Leslie’s has, please consider supporting emerging writers in the IAQ today.

Deal or No Deal?

This week’s Throwback Artist Spotlight is Tivi Paningajak of Ivujivik, Nunavik, QC. As revealed in the title of the print, Paningajak shows a parka-clad walrus bargaining with a hunter. The walrus offers to give away his tusks (used to haul himself up onto the ice) in exchange for his life. Do you think this was a fair trade?
