Groundbreaking, devastatingly incredible Inuk artist, Tanya Tagaq, beat out high profile artists like the Arcade Fire, Drake, Chromeo and a long list of others, to win the 2014 Polaris Music Prize for her album, Animism.

She will receive the $30,000 prize and, in her acceptance speech, Tagaq encouraged everyone “to wear and eat seal as much as possible” adding “fuck PETA”.

Her performance included a dedication to missing and murdered Indigenous women, with scrolling projections of the names of #MMIW displayed behind her as she sang.
