My Name Is Arnaktauyok: The Life and Art of Germaine Arnaktauyok 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. She provides commentary on several of her works, offering a seldom-seen perspective on her inspiration and process. Featuring over one hundred full-colour reproductions of Germaine Arnaktauyok’s fascinating pieces from throughout her career, this engaging book provides an in-depth look at one of the world’s most important artists. The combination written word with the selected images provides an illustrated memoir about the life and artistic practice of an amazing Inuk woman. Highly recommended for secondary and college level students. Ideal for school and public libraries.
