Bio: A speaker of several Arctic languages and keen follower of all circumpolar happenings. But why Siku girl? Siku (and its variation in the Inuit languages) means ice. And Siku was the name chosen by then-KNR Greenland broadcaster Inga Hansen and myself for the Arctic news website we collaborated on from 2004 to 2012. Siku seemed a good name to keep alive here and on my Twitter feed as @sikugirl. If you're reading my blog, I'll ask you to forgive the typos you'll find: It's been hard to serve as my own copy-editor here, and every time I re-read my posts, I find new things to correct.
