The Transformations Project


By Tatanniq Idlout / Volcano

Dear Candada is a letter to Canada from Inuit artist and activist Tatanniq Lucie Idlout. It offers an intensely personal perspective about her people’s relationship with both Canada and the land and underlines the profound need for nation-building to provide an equal quality of life.

Ms. Idlout is an award-winning singer/songwriter, actor, activist and a climate change advocate from Nunavut. She is the daughter of Leah Idlout-Paulson and granddaughter of Joseph Idlout.

Created in Pond Inlet, Nunavut, on land that Inuit have occupied since time immemorial.
