Killiktee Killiktee (1987) comes from a long line of artists starting with his father, Shortie Killiktee. His grandparents on his mother’s side, Kopapik Ragee and Arnirnik Ragee were prominent Cape Dorset artists and his biological brothers are well known carvers, Toonoo Sharky, Napachie Sharky and Allasuaq Sharky. Killiktee started carving when he was 12 years old. His first carving was a seal. He was paid $20 for the piece and he was very proud of the money he earned.
Kiliktee worked at the Cape Dorset/Kinngait WBEC Studios. He studied at Peter Pitseolak School and he presently lives in Cape Dorset.
