Biography

Evie Mark is a throat singer, seamstress and filmmaker from Ivujivik, Nunavik who currently resides in Montreal, QC. Mark’s grandparents taught her the cultural significance of throat singing and she was later trained by her Inuktitut language teacher. In 2007 Mark directed the documentary Ullumi (Today) that examines the changes that had occurred within Inuit communities in Nunavik and Nunavut as a result of the Internet and globalization. Notably, Mark has performed with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra’s production Tusarnituuq! Nagano In The Land Of The Inuit (2009) and as well as at a ceremony held at the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal in which throat singing was recognized as a form of intangible heritage under the Cultural Heritage Act. She currently teaches Inuktitut and Arts at Nunavik Sivunitsavut in Montreal, QC and continues to travel for her throat singing performances.View Long Biography and Citations
