Mary Pudlat

Inuit

Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1923-2001)

“A prolific Canadian Inuit artist, Mary Pudlat retains clear memories of her early years living in the traditional Inuit hunting lifestyle in the area near Povungnituk in Arctic Quebec. Orphaned as a teenager, she lived for a while with her brother in Ivujivik before moving to Baffin Island in the early-1940s. There she married Samuelie Pudlat in 1943 and continued to live in the traditional semi-nomadic camps along the south shore of Baffin Island until she and her husband and children moved permanently to Cape Dorset in 1963.
