Saqiyuq is a North Baffin Inuktitut word for a wind that whips across the land or ice, changing directions but maintaining its speed. This play, adapted from Nancy Wachowich's biography of the same name, is a collection of true stories from three Inuit women's lives; together, their stories offer one family's experience of almost a century of shifting winds in the Eastern Arctic. Brought to you by the Pond Inlet based Tununiq Asarniit Theatre Group, Saqiyuq has been adapted and directed by Christopher Morris and stars Annie Peterloosie, Sheena Akoomalik and Abbie Ootova.
