Manasie Akpaliapik


Arctic Bay, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1955- )

Manasie was raised in a family of artists. His father and mother, Lazaroosee and Nakyuraq Akpaliapik are both sculptors in the community of Arctic Bay. His adopted grandparents, artists Peter and Elisapee Kanangnaq Ahlooloo, and his maternal great aunt Paniluk Qamanirq began to teach him to carve when he was about ten years old. He learned to carve by watching them, and as they carved the elders entertained Manasie with Inuit legends and stories.
