An Inuit drum player.
Historical Context:
"Born in 1946, near the village of Igloolik in the Canadian Arctic, Arnaktauyok is well known for her drawings, etchings, and children's book illustrations, as well as for her designs for two Canadian coins. Her art reflects her love or narrative and devotion to Inuit culture. Common themes of her work include her interpretations of mythic stories such as shape-shifting polar bears, how caribou came to be, the origin of the sun and moon, and how, in the old days, igloos could fly." -From the True North Gallery Website.
