Kerry McCluskey

Kerry McCluskey has been working as a journalist and writer in the Arctic, telling the stories of the North since 1993. In 1999, she began travelling across the Arctic collecting stories, information, photographs, and artwork about ravens from Inuit, First Nations, and non-Aboriginal Northerners alike. Tulugaq, her first book, is the result of this research.

Tulugaq: An Oral History of Ravens
Authors:
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Inuit;

Ravens appear in mythology and folklore the world over. Few other birds have inspired such simultaneous dread and fascination, or given rise to so many forms of artistic expression. But in the Arctic, ravens are not only mythological and artistic figures, but also brilliant scavengers, fascinating communicators, and daily nuisances.

The result of ten years of research and interviews, Tulugaq examines the raven's place in Canadian Arctic society and reveals a bird that is at times loved, maligned, dreaded, and even revered. With dozens of photographs and first-person stories from communities across Nunavut, the Yukon, and the Northwest Territories, Tulugaq is a visually stunning examination of one of the animal kingdom's most complicated figures.

He is looking forward to the new school year, but as he meets his friends again for the first time after summer vacation, he notices that a lot of his friends’ families are very different from his own. Some have one mom and one dad, and some have only a mom. Some kids live with their grandparents. Some live with two dads or two moms. As Talittuq hears about all the fun his friends have had with their families, he learns that families come in many different shapes and sizes, and what holds them all together is love!

Sukaq loves to drift off to sleep listening to his mother tell him stories. His favourite story is the tale of how a raven created the world. But this time, as his mother begins to tell the story and his eyelids become heavy, he is suddenly whisked away on the wings of the raven to ride along as the entire world is formed! This traditional legend from Inuit storyteller Roy Goose is brought to life through co-author Kerry McCluskey's jubilant retelling.
