Several well-known Inuit musicians are among the nominees for the 2023 Juno Awards.

The full list of nominees for the annual awards that celebrate Canadian music was announced Tuesday.

Susan Aglukark, originally from Arviat, is nominated in the Contemporary Indigenous Artist or Group of the Year category for her 2022 album, The Crossing.

At last year’s Junos ceremony, Aglukark received the Humanitarian Award in recognition of the work she has done as founder of the Arctic Rose Foundation charity, an organization that supports Indigenous-led, arts-based after school programs and other cultural creative projects for Indigenous youth.

Throat singer Tanya Tagaq is no stranger to the award scene. The multi-Juno winner from Cambridge Bay is nominated in the Alternative Album of the Year category for her 2022 record, Tongues.

Finally, Nunavut throat singers Iva & Angu have been nominated for Traditional Indigenous Artist or Group of the Year. The duo independently released the record Katajjausiit last year.

The 2023 Junos ceremony will be held March 13 in Edmonton, Alta., broadcast on CBC. The show will be hosted by Marvel actor Simu Liu, and will be preceded by numerous fan events in the Edmonton area.
