Michael Kusugak

Mainly, I am a storyteller. I try to educate people about who we are: Inuit. I have been doing this since my first children's book was published 28 years ago. I visit schools, libraries, children's festivals and other venues to tell stories about the Inuit. What I would like to do in the next year is to start writing for adults. I have developed an outline to write a novel which takes place in Nunavut, Yukon and other places. It will talk about the residential school experience, pilot training and a return back into Inuit society in the modern day.

Michael Kusugak is an Inuit storyteller from Nunavut. He lives in Sooke B.C.
