Atira Taalrumiq (My name is Taalrumiq). I am an Inuvialuk Artist & Designer from Tuktuuyaqtuuq, Inuvialuit Settlement Region, NWT, now living in Lheidlii T’enneh territory. The skills and talent I inherited from my matrilineal line of expert Inuit Seamstresses combined with a modern education allow a unique opportunity for me to create, teach and share Inuvialuit culture with the world by storytelling and cultural preservation through art. At the same time reclaiming loss of culture, pride in Inuit identity, and healing of intergenerational trauma. Working with traditional Inuvialuit design elements, using traditional organic and modern materials I create contemporary Inuit adornment and original Inuit fine art.
