Janet Tamalik McGrath

Janet Tamalik McGrath grew up between traditional Inuit and modern influences in the 1970s Canadian Arctic, in the Nattilingmiut region. A fluent speaker of Inuktut and lifelong language proponent, her doctoral work at Carleton University challenged Canadian academic norms by foregrounding Inuktut while also creating a unique bridge between epistemologies. She published this research in her book, The Qaggiq Model: Toward a Theory of Inuktut Knowledge Renewal, in 2018. As Nattilingmiutut dialect translator for The Breathing Hole, she brings over forty years of personal and professional experience in bridging cultures, time spans, and historical contexts.
