Jeannie Alviaktak

Pangnirtung
 
Jeannie Alivaktuk was born in 1947 at the Usualuk camp, but moved to Pangnirtung, Nunavut with her family in 1967. In 1986, Alivaktuk joined the Pangnirtung Tapestry Studio; however, after nine years, her eyes were so strained that she needed to retire. She left the studio to work at the local fish plant. She remembers her years making tapestry fondly, and enjoyed seeing the pieces take shape in her hands.
Alivaktuk likes to evoke a sense of peace and naturalism in her work. She prefers to depict times when the Inuit used traditional methods to live and hunt.
