Mark Eetak

Mark Eetak

Inuit

Arviat, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1949- )

Mark was born at Kingayualik (Padlie) April 11, 1949, and lived on the land with his parents until moving to Arviat at age eleven. He is a deacon with the Anglican Church where he leads the youth service. Mark and Angie, his wife, have five children and two grandchildren. Quite soon after starting the jewellery program he realized that the old legends, as remembered by his mother Martha Morjunik Eetak, would make good subjects for his work. Angie says, “he learned a lot from what he thought he’d never thought he would dream of!”
