Tagaq / “Tiriganiak”

“When it’s so sparse and flat and frozen. I’m looking out and there’s nothing: not a house, not one vehicle and you don’t know if anyone has ever walked there before. It’s really humbling and it’s okay to die. That’s probably one of the only times I feel that it’s okay to die. I could die at that second and everything would just be fine.” –Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq Gillis on her hometown, Nunavut.
