Kakee was born in Iqaluit, but moved to Cape Dorset in 1993. He began carving at the age of sixteen, and although he is self-taught, he also learned by watching other carvers. His father, Ningeosiak Peter, and his mother, Parnee Peter are both sculptors in Cape Dorset. Kakee’s grandfather, the late Jamasie Teevee was a well-known graphic artist.
Although he does not carve often, Kakee has created very delicate and imaginative carvings with much attention to detail. His favourite subjects to carve are animals such as birds and whales.
