Inukjuak Community

With a population of 1576, Inukjuak is one of the biggest and most populated Inuit villages of Nunavik, in northern Quebec. It is located off the coast of the Hudson Bay, at the mouth of the Innuksuak River. It has a long history with the Hudson’s Bay Company, which opened a trading outpost in the community in 1920.

 

Inukjuak is as an important center of creative Inuit art and has produced notable artists including Silassie Tuki, Johnny Inukpuk, Daniel Inukpuk and, Conlucy Nastapoka, and Lucassie Echalook.

 

Printmaking began in 1972 under the instruction of Thomassie and Noah Echalook who transformed an abandoned classroom in to a print shop.
