Elisapie Isaac’s mother is Inuk and her father is from Newfoundland. She was adopted at birth by an Inuit family and raised in that culture. Her cradle: Salluit, Nunavik. For Elisapie, the North is not at the end of the earth; rather, it is at the centre. “My grandfather said that in order not to get lost, we must always look to where we came from,” in her words.
Great singers are, above all, great communicators. Elisapie possesses this precious ability to instill messages with probing light onto realities that are often overlooked. She has worked in radio, television, and finally film, where she has won numerous prizes for her documentary Si le temps le permet, produced by the National Film Board.
