Trilingual album (English, French, Inuktitut) with stories and photographies

This book reveals the fascinating story of the Inuk hunter and artist Tivi Etok. The interviews with Tivi Etok, which focus on his travels, experiences, hopes and observations, together with the reproductions of his stonecuts, bring to life the traditional Inuit life now threatened with extinction.  The book contains more than 30 works by this internationally recognized artist, as well as breathtaking photographs of the land that he has crisscrossed during his life—the Parc national Kuururjuaq. The reader is transportated into another world, to discover the extraordinary skills, the wisdom and the knowledge acquired over a lifetime by an artist who is also a man of great courage.
