By Norma Dunning
In Annie Muktuk and different tales, Norma Dunning portrays the unvarnished realities of northern lifestyles via gritty characters who locate themselves in tricky events. Dunning grew up in a silenced kind of Aboriginality, experiencing racism, assimilation, and colonialism; as she all started exploring her Inukness, her writing bubbled as much as the outside. Her tales problem southern perceptions of the north and Inuit lifestyles via evocative, nuanced voices accented with Inuktitut phrases and symbolism. As with Alootook Ipellie’s paintings, those brief tales deliver Inuit existence into the truth of the present.
