Iqaluit, Nunavut Territory, Canada


“From Igloolik we moved to Pond Inlet. It was there that I started to carve. A white man there said that my uncle and one other man were the only people who carved in this settlement. I told him I knew I could carve too if I tried … I have been carving since then.

“In 1959 I came to Iqaluit from Pond Inlet. I helped to get the Co-op started and remained working there for three years. When I was working for the government at the Arts & Crafts [Centre], I was introduced to painting. When I was a boy I used to draw many pictures. My father got pencils for me from the white men. I enjoy painting.”
