Inuktitut was nominated for two Juno awards, and, on Sunday, won Elisapie the award for contemporary Indigenous artist of the year. (The second nomination was for album artwork of the year, which was awarded to Nicolas Lemieux, Mykaël Nelson and Albert Zablit for Riopelle Symphonique, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal.)

The album has 10 tracks, translating Heart, Metallica, Pink Floyd and more.

“Although they’re not my songs, this album is probably my most personal album, because these are Inuit stories. These are my stories, these are my family’s stories, my cousins’ stories,” she said.

“This is really not so much about the songs, but the emotions that we were able to feel through these songs.”

For Elisapie, the nominations were a recognition of all the people who helped and inspired her along the way.
