This wall hanging was made by Veronica Manilak who is one of the most talented wall hanging artists in Rankin Inlet. She was born in 1935 and grew up living the traditional Inuit nomadic lifestyle that involved hunting and fishing for food and clothing. In 1961 her family moved to Rankin Inlet as her father found employment at the local nickel mine. At that time Veronica already had experience-sewing clothing for herself and her family.
