Evie is a proud mother to three beautiful daughters who live with her in Montreal. During her childhood, Evie was raised in two cultures. Part of her childhood, was in Ivujivik, located at the northernmost point of Nunavik, Quebec. And parts of her fond memories were in the country side in Ontario. Awed by her Inuit culture, she learned and practiced her Inuit ways which allowed her in later years to preserve the heritage of her people. Today, she is renowned for her remarkable abilities in traditional Inuit singing, throat singing and storytelling. Her skills have taken her to different parts of the world. Another of Evie’s passions has been film production. Her productions and television appearances have aired on APTN and CBC.
Evie started throat singing at age 11 and began performing at 18. She was inspired by her great aunt and a cousin of her grandmother. Her throat singing has taken her around the world performing alongside orchestras and with other traditional artists. Evie grew up listening to traditional songs, she recently became an avid singer. Evie produces modern / traditional garments to wear during her performances.
Evie teaches Kindergarten to High school traditional Inuit practices and trains teachers so they too can keep students involved. Her curriculum includes throat singing, singing, storytelling, legends, Inuit clothing design and sewing, Inuit games, dance, and performance art. She’s led presentations and workshops in most schools in Nunavik and many schools in British Columbia.
