Description

Nala's Magical Mitsiaq: A Story of Inuit Adoption published by Inhabit Media about the concept known as Inuit adoption. Adoption among Inuit families is a unique and age-old practice that sees families within Nunavut placing children with adoptive parents in the community. This tradition remains a celebrated part of Inuit culture and identity to this day. Nala’s Magical Mitsiaq tells the story of how Nala and Qiatsuk became sisters through Inuit custom adoption. This story, lovingly based on the author Jennifer Noah's own family, explains the unique process of custom adoption and introduces readers to the importance of adoption within Inuit culture. Comic like colour illustrations and moving text bring this story of family love to life for readers both familiar and unfamiliar with this unique cultural tradition.
