Siqiniup Qilauta does Inuit cultural performances with throat singing, drum dancing, games and storytelling.

The group’s name, Siqiniup Qilauta, roughly translates to The Sun’s Drum. The name was influenced by an Inuit legend they heard about the sun. When the sun has a complete halo around it, it indicates good luck, and the halo represents a drum.

The group, Heidi Langille and Lynda Brown, are currently located in Ottawa, Ontario, and have performed locally, nationally and internationally.  Heidi’s family is from Nunatsiavut, and Lynda’s family is from Pangnirtung, Nunavut.  Inuit have a deep connection to the nuna (land), tariuq (sea) and siku (ice).    52 of 53 communities in Inuit Nunangat are along the coastline, which makes about  50% of  Canada’s coastline.   Many of our songs and stories are connected to that land, ice and sea.
