“Ningeosiak, the youngest daughter in the family, says that she learned to carve from her father, who taught her, and by watching her mother Mayoreak. She started carving when she was 13 and 14 years of age.
“Ningeosiak is one of the most prolific young female carvers in Cape Dorset today. There are actually very few women who carve now, other than Ovilu Tunnillie and Mary Oshutsiaq. While she has tried drawing, it does not hold as much appeal for her as for her sister Siassie Kenneally or her cousins, Annie Pootoogook and Shuvinai Ashoona. In fact, she finds drawing harder than carving.”
