Nalliq is a collection of essays, stories, prose and poetry navigating what it means to be indigenous at this point in time. There are as many ways to be indigenous as there are Native people in the state, and because our communities are in such a state of flux and have changed so quickly over just a few short generations, we are all still figuring it out.
But we get to go through this journey of reclaiming, perpetuating and revitalizing our indigeneity together. And that is why this collection has been named “Nalliq,” which in Iñupiaq, means “to travel side by side.”
