(1896 - 1975)

“Eleeshushe’s creative talents garnered her much respect in her community; not just for drawing and carving but also for her skillful sewing and the elaborate designs she brought to the making of traditional skin clothing. Along with her husband, Parr, she was a talented and prolific drawer, leaving a legacy of well over 1000 prints in the archives of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative.”
