My name is Arnaktauyok : the life and art of Germaine Arnaktauyok

Arnaktauyok, Germaine (author,, artist.). Oh, Gyu, (co-author.). Fisher, Kyra Vladykov, (contributing essayist.).

Germaine Arnaktauyok is one of the Canadian North's most prolific and recognizable artists. In this book, she tells the story of her life in her own words: her 'very traditional Inuk life' growing up in Nunavut at a camp near Igloolik, and her experiences later in a residential school in Chesterfield Inlet; her education as an artist in Winnipeg and Ottawa; and her return to the North, where she continues to create drawings, etchings, and illustrations that have been featured in museums and galleries worldwide."
