Bobby Quppaapik Tarkirk


Salluit, Quebec, Canada


Bobby Tarkirk grew up in the area of Ivujivik, eighty miles from Salluit. Descriptions of him never fail to mention his unusual size: Tarkirk was always the tallest Inuk in his community, and his large hands seemed incongruous with the detailed miniatures which he carved. He married Toonoo, a widow from Sugluk, with whom he raised two sons and two daughters. Bobby moved to Salluit in 1958, and soon after started carving.
