Novel translated into English

The heroine of the novel, Sanaaq, is an Inuk woman who is both strong and sensitive.  No one has captured, as has Nappaaluk, the particular challenges facing an Inuk woman growing up with her family in the Arctic — responding to changes brought by the white man and to the many particular situations, good and bad, that face a northern woman in her domestic and social life.

Translated into English by Peter Frost, from the French version of the novel by Bernard Saladin d'Anglure.

Mitiarjuk Nappaaluk, Sanaaq. An Inuit novel, Inukjuak, Avataq Cultural Institute and Winnipeg, University of Manitoba Press, 2014, 227p.
