St. Andrew's College is pleased to welcome Inuk singer/songwriter Susan Aglukark as the special guest for its gala banquet and fundraiser.
Tickets are $100 with a partial tax receipt and are available at St. Andrew's College or by calling (306) 966-8970.
Aglukark's Nomad is a 60-minute speaking and singing presentation on the last 1000 years of Canadian Inuit history. Through songs and stories, Nomad will take you on the journey of the Canadian Inuit over the last 1000 years and shed some light on the psychological and cultural impact of that rapid change.
Broken down into four stages, The Viking Era (the mid 1200’s), The Explorer Era (the 1500’s), The Whaler Era (the 1800’s) and today, the Age of Progress, Nomad will give you a glimpse into the collective soul of The People of Canada’s Arctic and how we/they have survived and thrived through adversity and rapid change.
Incorporating images, film and video, you will get a glimpse of the resilience and determination of a people who have maintained a quiet dignity despite near annihilation by disease and rapid change.
The presentation incorporates songs written (recorded) and inspired by some of the people’s greatest moments in terms of change and/or challenge. Ms. Aglukark speaks about some of the parallels between those turning points and her own turning points in her songwriting career.
