Tanya Tagaq is a masterful mind known for her avant-garde compositions, performances and storytelling, as revealed via her debut novel, Split Tooth. The list of accolades on her mantle have solidified her space as one of the most celebrated: JUNO Award, Member of the Order of Canada, Polaris Music Prize, multiple honorary doctorates and now the bestseller’s list for the aforementioned novel.
