    Pauloosie Kooneeliusie was my late father. Many years ago, I discovered this art via online. I am very curious of the owner and at the same time, I’m envious of the owner. My father’s art depicts a true traditional lifestyle of Inuit and tells a story of how Inuit lived then. I wish I could connect with the owner.

    His Daughter, Maggie
