Meals and Banquet
The 2022 Summit will include catered breakfasts, coffee breaks and lunches throughout the 3-day event, with a gala banquet for all registered Summit attendees taking place the evening of December 1 (7:00 – 10:00 pm).
We are excited to announce that Arnakuluit, Siibii and Beatrice Deer will be performing at the Summit banquet on December 1.
The meaning of “arnakuluit” is very special for Janice Oolayou and Tamara Takpannie as both women are raising their children to be proud Inuit in their communities. Arnakuluit translates into “beautiful women” in English. They performed at the 2018 Hudson Bay Summit and are coming back to share their gift with Summit attendees once again!
Siibii is a Montreal based queer, non-binary, Indigenous artist originally from the Cree community of Mistissini, Quebec. Their six-track EP’s debut single Love Is Up The River garnered more than 20,000+ streams on Spotify and hit Top 10 on the NCI FM Indigenous Music Countdown. Their next single “Wish We Were Older” was #1 on the Indigenous Music Countdown and was featured on CBC North & APTN National News.
Acclaimed “Inuindie” pop star Beatrice Deer is a singer-songwriter based in Montreal. Half Inuk and half Mohawk, Beatrice was born and raised in Nunavik, Quebec, in the small village of Quaqtaq. She has released six studio albums, including her newest, titled SHIFTING. Her award-winning songs are crafted upon deeply personal lyrics and blend indie rock and modern folk with traditional Inuit stories and throat singing.
The Hudson Bay Consortium has coordinated with ArcticNet to schedule the 2022 Hudson Bay Summit in Montreal just prior to ArcticNet’s Annual Scientific Meeting 2022 in Toronto, December 5-8, 2022. These areas of coordination are intended to reduce travel costs for individuals planning to attend both events, particularly those traveling from northern Indigenous communities.
