One of Ottawa’s premiere events, our A Taste of the Arctic draws hundreds of foodies and influential decision-makers seeking to sample Northern culture and cuisine.

The event offers a selection of uniquely Arctic ingredients such as seal, caribou, arctic char, arctic berries, arctic shrimp, and muskox—among other options.

It also showcases Inuit culture and talented performers demonstrating modern connections to the long-standing traditions that keep Inuit culture vibrant.

Northern Haze

Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami is pleased to present Northern Haze as this year’s headline act. Northern Haze began its musical journey in 1984 in Igloolik, Nunavut jamming on homemade guitars and a plastic drum set. The following year, they released their first album, a self-titled debut in Inuktitut, the first Indigenous-language rock album ever recorded in North America. They gained a tremendous following over the following decades with rousing guitar riffs reminiscent of Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin. The band has continued to create music, even in the face of the tragic loss of two band members in 2007. Their most recent album, Siqinnaarut is their first new recording since the 80s and delivers packs a historically and culturally charged punch. Expect to hear some classics and some new songs too.
