When Tanya Tagaq won the Polaris Music Prize in September it put the Inuk throat singer in a very high profile spotlight.

And Tagaq has been using that spotlight to good effect: shedding light on the unacceptable response to the level of murdered or missing aboriginal women in Canada, taking on PETA for their stance on the seal hunt, and throwing down about Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Sarah talked to Tagaq about these things and a whole lot more for an in-depth interview at Huffington Post Music Canada.
