Does your name have a story?

Kukik is named after her great grandmother. Naullaq's name honours his uncle. Panigusiq and Tegeapak have stories behind their names, too. Naming is an important practice to Inuit. This book follows four Inuit children as they explain the meanings of their names in simple language for young children to enjoy.

Written by four Inuit children who share their own stories about how they got their names, this bilingual storybook offers a unique look into Inuit traditional naming practices.

Kukik Kusugak lives in Iqaluit and Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. Seth Naullaq Benjamin Arreak lives in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Panigusiq Obed lives in Nunavut. Dominic Tegeapak lives in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. Amiel Sandland is an illustrator living in the Toronto area. He studied illustration at Seneca College, eventually specializing in comic arts and character design. He has also dabbled in layout, comics, and props making. Rarely found without a pen in hand, he enjoys drawing animals, monsters, and plants.
