Celina Kalluk is a Year 1, Nunavut Teacher Education Program (NTEP) student at Nunatta Campus, Iqaluit. She is a resident of the beautiful High Arctic community of Resolute Bay / Qausuittuq.

She has reissued a copy of her book entitled Sweetest Kulu. This beautiful bedtime poem, written by internationally acclaimed Inuit throat singer Celina Kalluk, describes the gifts bestowed upon a newborn baby by all the animals of the Arctic. Lyrically and lovingly written, this visually stunning book is infused with the traditional Inuit values of love and respect for the land and its animal inhabitants. It is written in both Inuktitut Roman Orthography and English and is available on Indigo. It was published by Inhabit Media.

Celina Kalluk has performed throat singing in countries across the world, including Mali, Mexico, Greece and at Windsor Palace as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration. She regularly sings as part of the touring cast of Artcirq Inuit Performance Collective, a community-based circus and multimedia company based out of Igloolik, Nunavut. She has performed numerous times with her cousin Tanya Tagak. She is also a visual artist and has illustrated several book covers and other literacy material.

We are pleased to have such a dedicated and accomplished student, artist, writer and performer in the Bachelor of Education degree program.

Congratulations Celina!
