Elisapie Isaac

“As Inuit we’re not frightened to mix things up,” says musician and filmmaker Elisapie Isaac. “We have a very eclectic culture; not one that holds us back but rather a culture in transition.” Isaac was a member of Taima, the musical ensemble that won a 2005 Juno for Best Aboriginal Recording of the Year, and has since pursued a successful solo career in music. Her film credits include If the Weather Permits, a documentary filmed in Kangirsujuaq that explores questions of identity, rupture and change.
