Paula Ikuutaq Rumbolt is from Baker Lake, Nunavut. She is
currently attending Concordia University in Montreal. Growing up,
formal education was strongly encouraged by her grandmother because
she realized that this is the way to make it in the modern world.
After high school, Paula attended Nunavut Sivuniksavut in Ottawa.
There she learned much about Inuit history and culture. She
realized how important it was to connect with her culture and began
to learn as much as she could after her year in the program. She
returned home for a year and learned how to sew, spoke to the
elders in her community, and began to feel a very strong connection
to her culture.
