Inuit Journeys


Kira Van Deusen 2016


My life journey has included a wealth of interests, most of them involving language, music, or both. I've played the cello since I was ten but began to learn languages other than English only in high school. A love of language and story led to research, storytelling, and writing.

On this site I'll share some of what I've learned as a result of following these paths:

  • Most recently, a journey to modern day Greece to investigate a fascination with the Oracle of Delphi and mysteries that remain.
  • Travel in Iran and and a growing acquaintance with Persian culture in Canada.
  • Music improvisation and the joys of music from around the globe.
  • Storytelling performance.
  • Walking and playing music for the labyrinth — an ancient path of reflection, healing, and celebration.
  • A journey to Nunavut spending a month with elders as they told the ancient epic Kiviuq.

May you enjoy the journey with me!
