KILLIKTEE KILLIKTEE

1987-

Killiktee Killiktee comes from a long line of artists starting with his father, Shortie Killiktee. His grandparents

on his mother’s side, Kopapik Ragee and Arnirnik Ragee were prominent Cape Dorset artists and his

biological brothers are well known carvers, Toonoo Sharky, Napachie Sharky and Allasuaq Sharky

Killiktee started carving when he was 12 years old. His first carving was a seal. He was paid $20 for the piece

and he was very proud of the money he earned.

“I learned how to carve by watching my brothers Toonoo Sharky, Napachie Sharky and Allasuaq Sharky

working on their carvings. I enjoy carving different types of animals, especially bears and eagles.”

Killiktee is also an accomplished draughtsman and a couple of his drawings have been translated into limited

edition prints.
