Johnny Aculiak

Inuit

Inukjuak, Quebec, Canada

(1951-2008)

Johnny Aculiak was born in on one of the Hopewell Islands, just north of Inukjuak. He has lived in other communities, but moved back to Inukjuak in 1993. Although he is best known for his carvings, Johnny has also tried drawing and jewellery making. Johnny learned to carve on his own in 1968 and has since worked with materials such as stone, antler, ivory and whalebone. Johnny, however, prefers working with soapstone and one of his favourite subjects to carve depicts an Inuk hunting game; he feels it is important others learn about his people and their culture.
