Annie Kingalik

Inuit

Inukjuak, Montreal

(1963- )

Her father is Samson Kingalik, and her mother is Mina POV Kingalik. She remembers starting to sew with her sister in law because her mother needed help making various items for the family. She left Inukjuak for Montreal and also took care of her son who had been handicapped in an accident. Unfortunately, he later died in 2016. This gave Annie some time to concentrate on making wall hangings.
