Tantoo is a soft pink nude.

Tantoo is named after prolific Cree/Métis actor Tantoo Cardinal. Having over 100 film and television credits to her name Tantoo is an icon of Canadian acting. In 2015 she reached new acclaim after receiving the award of excellence from ACTRA - Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists. In her work, she ensures characters are both accurate and honest portrayals of Indigenous people, working with writers to achieve this balance. Her first leading role, in 2018's Falls Around Her, was written her for by Indigenous filmmaker Darlene Naponse and shot on the director’s homeland, the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation territory near Sudbury, Ont. Every element of the film was true and authentic, even the fire, which was tended by a fire keeper, a traditional role in Indigenous ceremonies. It is this careful portrayal of Indigenous characters and traditions, in part, that has made Tantoo Cardinal such an integral part of the Indigenous and Canadian film industry.
