Sarahme Akoomalik was born August, 1960 in a tent on the land. She remembers being born. ‘It was so calm', she reports. She was adopted by her grandparents when she was 5 months old, and raised, by her grandmother, Martha Akoomalik, a wise and trusted elder who taught Sarahme from a young age how to work with skins and learn the skills she would need to be a woman. For most of her adult life she has worked as an educator, mentoring young people and teaching them the knowledge she learned from her grandmother. Sarahme particularly likes working with younger children and is employed at Mittimatalik’s elementary school as a Student Support staff. She has also been taking courses, training in early childhood development.
