“Reneltta Arluk is of Inuvialuit, Gwich’in and Chipewyan-Cree descent originally from Fort Smith, North West Territories. Raised by her grandparents on the trap-line until school age, Reneltta travelled with them across the North. Being raised in a nomadic environment gave her the skills and imagination to become the artist she is today.
Reneltta will read from her new book Thoughts and Other Human Tendencies as well as some excerpts from TUMIT (the powerful one-woman show that marked Reneltta’s first written work as a playwright). The reading will be followed by a Q&A session with the author.”
