Mathew is primarily a jeweller and drum-dancer, with performance an important part in his life. He has become in effect an “ambassador at large” for Nunavummiut. His commitment to creating opportunities for members of his community and fellow artists means that for many he acts as a mentor, a leader and a teacher. Mathew is the co-founder of the Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association, and is also on the advisory committee for the Canada Council, and is the President of the Inuit Art Foundation. He was elected as a Member of the Order of Canada on November 18, 2016.
