“[Agnes Nanogak’s] mother was of Mackenzie Delta/Copper Eskimo background; her father, William Natkutsiak (Billy Banksland), came from Alaska as a guide to explorer Vilhjalmur Stefannson. Nanogak moved to Holman, Northwest Territories, at the age of twelve, married Wallace Goose, and raised seven children. She is one of Holman’s most prominent and prolific artists, having contributed a total of about one hundred forty images to twenty annual print collections since 1967, when her artistic career began.
