Lizzie Saggiak


Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada


Born in Arctic Quebec, Lizzie Saggiak remembers crossing Hudson Strait with her family to settle at Igalaalik Camp in the Andrew Gordon Bay area. Lizzie’s husband Saggiak (1897-1980), who was also an artist, moved his family to Cape Dorset after obtaining a permanent job at the nursing station there. Their son Kumakuluk is a carver.

Between 1960 and 1967, Lizzie produced five prints for the Dorset annual collections. One of her delicate drawings was featured in the “Strange Scenes: Early Cape Dorset Drawings” exhibit.

There is currently no artwork on display for Lizzie Saggiak. If you would like to inquire about this artist, then please contact the gallery.
