“On a Monday evening in August, I am sitting at a Holiday Inn in downtown Toronto with John Angaiak, a Yup’ik Inuit musician who has travelled more than 4,300 miles to get here. The bar is closing early; a glass of last-call red wine sits in front of him. As soon as we are introduced, he proudly shows me photos of his wife and daughter from his wallet and describes his life back in Homer, Alaska, in plain words that sound lifted from his own lyrics. “I live far away by the ocean,” he says. “I catch and eat fresh fish; I paint; I write songs. If you come visit, I’ll cook for you.”
