Storytelling with Michael Kusugak

Artist: Michael Kusugak
Sooke, BC

Inside our giant whale, Inuit children’s author and storyteller Michael Kusugak weaves tales about his traditional upbringing in Canada’s North. Michael’s work has won the Ruth Schwartz Award for children’s literature and has been short listed for various other awards, the most recent being the Hackmatack Award, down east.

Some of his books have been translated into French, Japanese, Korean, and Braille. A PROMISE IS A PROMISE appeared in a Hollywood movie, “LEAVING NORMAL,” and was made into a play. The play has been performed across Canada and the United States, in schools and in theatres, like the Prairie Theatre Exchange in Winnipeg and the Young People’s Theatre in Toronto. It is also performed occasionally by the RAG AND BONE puppet company in Ottawa.
