A young Inuk man’s poetic take on his place in the history of his people.


Mosha Folger, born in Iqaluit, Nunavut, with roots in Vancouver, is the product of an Inuit mother and a Brooklynite father. A writer and performer, he has performed at slams and open mics in Ottawa and Vancouver since December of 2005. 

He has been a playwright participant at Weesageechak Begins to Dance; performed for her Excellency Michaelle Jean; and shared his "Eskimo-centric" brand of spoken word at various venues, including WestFest in Ottawa, the Railway Club in Vancouver, and the Alianait Arts Festival in Iqaluit. He has garnered renown for his intimate, personal work, but he doesn’t shy away from making his opinion known.

Mosha draws a narrative arc with spoken word and song; from his Inuit ancestors hunting seals to leaving his Arctic home to the glimmer of hope he sees for the future of his people. Mosha’s unique perspective reveals a culture and way of life far removed from the romantic notions of igloos and naked men running across the sea ice.

Never Saw It is part poetry and music, part biography, and part polemic. It is a brief history of an Inuk lifetime.
