“Born in [Inukjuak], Isa [was] always … a hunter, trapper and a fisherman who [lived] off the land. He began carving in 1948, after Jim Houston … had been on a visit to the settlement. His favourite subjects [were] the Arctic animals of his environment, especially otters. …[Isa signed] his work with his disc number, syllabics or Isa. S.”*
