Allakariallak was an Inuit actor and filmmaker from Canada. He was born in 1957 in the small Inuit hamlet of Uqsuqtuuq, in what is now Nunavut, Canada. He was raised in a traditional Inuit way of life and was an avid hunter, fisherman, and trapper.

In the 1980s, Allakariallak began to make his own films, often focusing on traditional Inuit culture and stories. He was one of the first Inuit filmmakers to make films that were widely seen, and his work was screened at a number of festivals, including the Montreal International Documentary Festival.

He was a founding member of the Inuit Broadcasting Corporation, which created radio and television programming about Inuit culture.

Allakariallak passed away in 2006, but his legacy lives on through his films and his advocacy work. His films remain important documents of Inuit culture and life, and his work as an advocate for Inuit rights has had a lasting impact on Canada. His work continues to be celebrated by Inuit communities and filmmakers around the world.
