About the Author


Donald Uluadluak was an elder from Arviat, Nunavut. He was born in Arviat and raised by his grandparents, when Inuit were nomadic and depended on game for survival. He was an elder advisor for the Nunavut Department of Education for several years. After he retired, he began recording memories and recollections from his life to publish as books for future generations. Kamik: An Inuit Puppy Story is the first book to be based on these fond memories. He was passionate about teaching the younger generation so that they would in turn pass on the knowledge he shared.
