(1895-1982)

Luke Anguhadluq spent much of his life as a camp leader in the Back River area (Chantrey Inlet) north of Baker Lake, living the traditional way of life on the land. In the early 1960s, he settled in the community of Baker Lake with his wife, Marion Tuu’luq, who later became a prominent tapestry and graphic artist. Luke began drawing in 1968 at the age of 73, and participated in the printing program in Baker Lake since it began in 1969.
