Elizabeth Nutaraluk Aulatjut (Nootaraloo)
Arviat, Nunavut

Elizabeth Nuturaluk Auladjut, a leading matriarch in Arviat (Eskimo Point), was also one of a legendary group of great carvers from the community that included, John Pangnark, Andrew Miki, Lucy Tasseor, Luke Anowtalik and Marc Alikaswa. She was one of the artists whose artworks defined a unique carving style for this community and became very collectible. Elizabeth’s late husband, Andy Aulatjut was also a carver.

Elizabeth was born near Ennadai Lake, 200 miles inland from the community of Arviat (Eskimo Point). In her early years she lived a nomadic life on the land and after enduring a decade of famine, she and her surviving family members were airlifted to Arviat in 1957. She made her first carvings to barter for food while on the land and then she continued to support her family with her sculpture once she moved into the community. Her first exhibition was the renowned Sculpture/ Inuit: Masterworks of the Canadian Arctic Exhibition (1971-73) that toured USA, Canada and Europe. She continued to exhibit her whole life in exhibitions throughout North America and Europe, and her art is included in many museum collections, as well as documented in many catalogues and books.

Salmon & Bear Totem Pole (1999)

by Stan Bevan

Stan Bevan has a long history of carving totem poles for private homes, international sites and cultural sites including the Kitselas Canyon near Terrace, British Columbia.
Recently he was commissioned with his co-instructors at the Freda Diesing School for Northwest Coast to produce three totem poles for the Margaret Cargill Foundation in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This pole was carved 20 years ago for a private home in California. 
The pole has aged and seasoned beautifully with few hairline checks.
