Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist, Mixed/Multi Media
Uumati Kisoun-Inuarak ( ᐆᒪᑎ) is a multimedia artist from Inuvik, born in 2001 on their ancestral lands by Kuukpak (the Mackenzie Delta), which translates to “[The] Great River.” Their mother’s family is Inuvialuit from Inuvik, NWT; Gwitchin from Old Crow, YK; and Kaska Dena from Deylu (Lower Post), BC. Uumati’s father’s family is Inuit from Mittimatalik, NU.
Uumati's art describes feelings that they cannot express in other ways and creates images that they want to see existing in the world. Their art includes documenting memories they want to hold onto from their time spent in their ancestral communities and experiences and observations from transitioning to living in the south.
Uumati has lived in various communities throughout the North Pacific, both ancestral lands and unceded territories. Uumati has been celebrating, living and making art on the traditional territories of the Esquimalt, Songhees and WSÁNEĆ nations for 13 years. Uumati says Mussi Cho for supporting their art.
