Qavavau Manumie (b. 1958)
Qavavau was born in Brandon, Manitoba where his mother, Paunichea, was hospitalized for treatment of tuberculosis. He returned to Kinngait (Cape Dorset) as a very young child and has lived there since.
For several years Qavavau has worked for the Kinngait Studios as a printmaker - first in the lithography studio and more recently in the stonecut studio. He is an accomplished and precise printmaker who enjoys the opportunity to demonstrate printmaking techniques to young artists and visitors to the studio.
Qavavau lives with his wife and son Peter in Kinngait, Nunavut.
