Peter Qumaluk Itukalla

Inuit

Puvirnituq, Quebec, Canada

(1954- )

Peter Qumaluk Itukalla or “Peter-Boy”, as he is sometimes called, was born on January 14, 1954 at his parent’s winter camp on the outskirts of Puvirnituq. At present, he lives in Puvirnituq with his wife Winnie, and their two children. Peter and his older brother Juanisi [Joanassie Jack Itukalla], are the nephews of the well-known carvers Levi and Inukpuk Qumaluk. His sister is Maggie Ittukallak. Born into such a talented family, which also includes both the late Joe Talirunili, and Davidialuk Alasua Amittu, it is not surprising that Peter became a carver. Although his father, Aisa Aviliaju Itukalla began carving in the early 1950s it was really his grandfather, Pauloosie Oolutaju Itukadluk, who encouraged Peter to carve as a boy of eight years old.
