Tunnganarniq Nunagijavut - Jacob Okatsiak, Ted Thompson and Chris Jr Mikeeuneak

Host Evano Jr. Aggark welcomes Jacob Okatsiak, Ted Thompson and Chris Jr. Mikeeuneak to the show. The three rappers play some songs for us, and talk about when they started making music together, and what they like to focus on with their lyrics. LIVE on September 29th, 2022.


 Jacob Okatsiak is a hip-hop artist from Arviat, Nunavut. As a kid, he performed at his local church and learned to play drums, piano, and guitar. Inspired by other Indigenous rappers, Jacob began to rap and record his own music, building a northern fan base.

For Jacob, rap music is a form of self-expression which has allowed him to gain confidence and speak from his heart about his emotions and life experiences.
