(1958 - Present)

Tuqialuq (Tuk) is the son of carver Sharky Nuna, who was killed in a boating accident while walrus hunting in 1979. After learning to carve by watching his father, Tuk made his first works when he was eight years old. He became more serious about carving in his late twenties and today carves whenever he is not out hunting. His rounded comfortable style suits the animal and human subjects that so interest him.
