Siku Allooloo

Last updated: March 15, 2022

Siku Allooloo is an Inuk/Haitian/Taíno artist and emerging filmmaker from Denendeh (NWT), by way of Mittimatalik, NU through her father and Haiti through her mother. Rooted in her Inuit, Haitian/Taíno, and Dene homelands, Siku is well-regarded as a leader in Indigenous resurgence working across the arts, cultural land-based education, and decolonial advocacy. Siku’s poetry and other writing have been widely published (The Guardian, Canadian Art Magazine, The Capilano Review), and her multimedia artwork has exhibited nationally in several groundbreaking Indigenous art exhibitions (including INUA, the inaugural exhibition at Qaumajuq-Winnipeg Art Gallery). Her interdisciplinary practice has found a natural alignment in experimental and documentary film, as she is currently developing a feature-length documentary in honour of her mother, historic Indigenous women’s activism, and Taíno resurgence. Spirit Emulsion is her first film.
