See on Scoop.itNWT News

Reneltta Arluk is a writer and actor of Inuvialuit, Gwich’in and Chipewyan-Cree descent originally from the Northwest Territories. Raised by her grandparents on the trap-line until school age, Reneltta travelled with them across the north. Being raised in a nomadic environment gave her the skills and imagination to become the writer and storyteller she is. Her first written work, TUMIT, was a one-woman show premiering under Akpik Theatre. A personal exploration of relationships and breaking cycles, TUMIT, meaning tracks in Inuktitut, took her storytelling one step further. Thoughts And Other Human Tendencies is Reneltta’s first book. A collage of poetry exploring relations and culture from the perspective of a young Aboriginal woman finding her passions and the snippets of joy and pain that comes from the experience.

Reneltta has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Acting degree from the University of Alberta. She is fortunate to continually work as an actor and playwright throughout Canada and internationally keeping her culture alive.
