An evening of storytelling with Reneltta Arluk

Date: Friday, November 14, 2014
Time: 7PM to 8:30PM

Reneltta Arluk is of Inuvialuit, Gwich’in and Chipewyan-Cree descent originally from Fort Smith, North West Territories. Raised by her grandparents on the trap-line until school age, Reneltta travelled with them across the North. Being raised in a nomadic environment gave her the skills and imagination to become the artist is she today.

Reneltta will read from her new book Thoughts and Other Human Tendencies as well as some excerpts from TUMIT (the powerful one-woman show that marked Reneltta’s first written work as a playwright). The reading will be followed by a Q&A session with the author.

 Thoughts and Other Human Tendencies is a collage of poetry exploring relations and culture from the perspective of a young Aboriginal woman finding her passions and the snippets of joy and pain that comes from the experience.

Copies of the book will be available in the Museum of Inuit Art’s Gift Shop and their will be an opportunity for your copy to be signed by the author!

Purchase a ticket for the reading and a book to receive a discounted price ($15.00) or decide to buy the book the night of the event from the gift shop ($16.95 + tax).
