Reneltta Arluk


Author

Reneltta Arluk is a writer and actor of Inuvialuit and Chipewyan-Cree descent originally from the Northwest Territories. Raised by her grandparents on the trap-line until school age, Reneltta travelled with them across the north. Being raised in a nomadic environment gave her the skills and imagination to become the writer and storyteller she is. Her first written work TUMIT was a one-woman show premiering under Akpik Theatre. A personal exploration of relationships and breaking cycles, TUMIT, meaning tracks in Inuktitut, took her storytelling one step further. Reneltta has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Acting degree from the University of Alberta. She is fortunate to continually work as an Actor and Playwright throughout Canada and internationally keeping her culture alive.
