Singer Tanya Tagaq asks for respect for her space after getting harassed in Toronto


  • Inuk throat singer/author Tagaq was approached by a white woman in downtown Toronto who tried to intiate a conversation by grabbing her arm

  • She told the woman not to touch her

  • The woman's daughter then followed her into a restaurant and screamed at her

  • Tagaq said that she is frequently harassed and touched by white women

  • Entitlement towards her body is part of the reason she no longer greets fans after performances

  • Tagaq also reiterated what should be common knowledge for social interactions and said that no one should touch her without asking first and people should respect her right to say no
