Who We Are

 

We are a team of two, each working in our areas of strength.
Attima was born out on the land between today’s settlements of Talurřuaq, and Kuugaarřuk, and raised in tents and igloos until his family moved into the settlement of Talurřuaq when he was a teenager. He started hunting on his own, by dog team, at an early age. He is proud to say that if he had to, he could survive out on the arctic tundra still today.
Elisabeth has an extensive background in the arts, in education, in training and development, and works in the role  of linguist for our Inuit language work. Some of the work from Elisabeth's art studio can be viewed in the section, "Elisabeth's Studio."
