Rachel and Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley
Of Inuit-Scottish-Cree ancestry, Rachel A. Qitsualik-Tinsley was born and raised in the traditional Inuit culture of the late 1950's. After working for some time as a language specialist and consultant, she found success as a writer. Together with her husband, Sean A. Qitsualik-Tinsley, she has published many hundreds of articles on Inuit culture/folklore, much of which is used as educational content around the world. Together, they write fiction and educational works exploring the secretive world of Arctic shamanism. Rachel has also contributed to books, including Ring of Ice, Our Story, America is Indian Country, and Canada in 2020. Along with her husband, she has had the further pleasure of co-authoring Qanuq Pinngurnirmata: Vol. I, a book of Inuit myths expressed in modern narrative. Rachel is fond of hawks, dogs, and vanilla ice-cream (not necessarily in that order).
Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley was born at the southernmost edge of Ontario. He grew up learning traditional woodcraft. They were brought together by a love of nature and each other. Together, they write Arctic fantasy.
