Ningiukulu Teevee (1963) is one of the most versatile and intelligent graphic artists to emerge from the Kinngait Studios. Ningiukulu is the daughter of Joanasie and Kanajuk Salomonie. Her father, Joanasie, was a community leader and much loved in Cape Dorset.
Ningiukulu started selling drawings in the late 1980s. Before that, she did illustrations for the School Board. She is self-taught, and draws the stories she heard at school, as told by Mialia Jaw. Ningiukulu is modest and ambivalent about the attention focused on her own work. Her work is often a key feature in the Cape Dorset Annual Print Collections, as she produces drawings of modern subjects as well as traditional ones.
