Susan AglukarkThe Arctic Rose of Canada
Susan Aglukark is one of Canada’s most unique and most honoured artists. An Inuk from Arviat, Nunavut, Aglukark has been walking a tension-filled path between two worlds, which has helped define her remarkable career. A unique presence in the mainstream music world, she is an Inuk woman, a modern woman, a strong woman with something important to say and a rarity in the entertainment industry. Embodying pure, graceful honesty and strength in her music, as her songs climbed the charts her stories and candor about the struggles of the Inuit and Aboriginal communities, and her bravery as she opened up about her own anger and struggle, won her an audience beyond that of most pop artists.
