Synopsis

Qummut Qukiria! celebrates art and culture within and beyond traditional Inuit and Sami homelands in the Circumpolar Arctic from the recovery of traditional practices such as storytelling and skin sewing to the development of innovative new art forms such as throatboxing (a hybrid of traditional Inuit throat singing and beatboxing). In this illuminating book, curators, scholars, artists, and activists from Inuit Nunangat, Kalaallit Nunaat, Sapmi, Canada, and Scandinavia address topics as diverse as Sami rematriation and the revival of the ladjogahpir (a traditional womans headgear), the experience of bringing Inuit stone carving to a workshop for inner-city youth, and the decolonizing potential of Traditional Knowledge and its role in contemporary design and beyond. Qummut Qukiria! showcases the thriving art and culture of the Indigenous Circumpolar peoples in the present and demonstrates its importance for the revitalization of language, social well-being, and cultural identity.

Anna Hudson is a professor of Canadian art history and curatorial studies at York University. Heather Igloliorte is an Inuk scholar from Nunatsiavut and is the Concordia University research chair in circumpolar Indigenous arts. Jan-Erik Lundstroem, a curator, critic, and art historian, is the former director of the Sami Center for Contemporary Art.
