Kakee Peter

Inuit

Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1973- )

Kakee was born in Iqaluit, but moved to Cape Dorset in 1993. He began carving at the age of sixteen, and although he is self-taught, he also learned by watching other carvers. His father, Ningeosiak Peter, and his mother, Parnee Peter are both sculptors in Cape Dorset. Kakee’s grandfather, the late Jamasie Teevee was a well-known graphic artist.
