ᐅᑯᑕ ᒥᑭᒐ Ohotaq Mikkigak 1936-2014

I enjoy doing colourful drawings, of people, animals, birds and especially the landscape. I used to enjoy hunting on the land, so that’s what I draw. I’ve done a few drawings of shamans, although I’ve never seen one. They are stories, true stories, told by my grandmother.

Ohotaq began drawing in the early years of the print program in Cape Dorset, and his print, Eskimo Fox Trapper, was released in 1961. After working full time for various community agencies, Ohotaq resumed his interest in drawing. Three of his prints were included in the 40th anniversary collection released in 1999 and he was represented in every subsequent collection until his death in 2014. In the later years, Ohotaq was a daily fixture at the table in the Kinngait Studios, working on drawings covering a wide range of themes and subjects, including an illustrated life history.
