Zebedee started carving when he was around eight years old “just to experiment”, but began carving seriously “with the idea of selling them”, around the age of eighteen.* Zebedee and his family permanently settled in the community of Arctic Bay in the mid-1960s, and carving became his primary means of income.
Zebedee is the husband of Arctic Bay artist Paungaqjuk Enoogoo. His sister, Pakka Aola, is also a carver in Arctic Bay.
