The Indigenous people of the north make a unique contribution to Canada’s cultural mosaic.  This portrait of Martha Otuk is one in a collection of drawings of the Inuit elders of Nunavut.  An Arviat elder, Martha’ story is of the last generation to survive entirely on the land, hunting, fishing and trapping.  In the last fifty years since these people have come off the land, they have fought to maintain their culture while being assimilated into modern society.  Martha’s quiet dignity is a superb example of the pride of the Inuit  people.
