  • Ningiukulu (Ningeokuluk) Teevee (born May 27, 1963 in Cape Dorset) is a Canadian Inuit writer and artist. She is the daughter of Joanasie (deceased) and Kanajuk Salomonie, and her father-in-law is the graphic artist Jamasie Teevee. Formerly known as Ningeokuluk, as of March 2017 she uses Ningiukulu, to reflect the modern orthography on her government issued identification. Ningiukulu Teevee, is recognized as one of Kinngait studios' leading artists. Teevee is a self-taught artist, who began her career in the 1990s. She uses ink and coloured pencils as her primary mediums but is adept in a multitude of drawing media, including black fibre-tip pen, coloured pencil, oil sticks, and watercolour. Her subject matter is diverse and creative. She is known for constructing imagery that is built from her knowledge of Inuit folklore, combined with the humorous aspects of contemporary life in Nunavut. The wealth of these Inuit stories depict, in her flattened 2D style (an abstraction of representation, referencing patterns found in nature), relationships between the land and animals that are used for sustenance, and the familial histories that define a wealth of cultural storytelling. As a modern day Inuk, raised in an urban community, the artist explores contemporary themes but also retains an interest in her cultural heritage including the Inuit oral tradition. While her interpretation of the stories heard from Elders are true to the telling, they are nonetheless interpreted through her own imagination and presented from her personal perspective. In addition to her talent as an artist, she is also an accomplished children's author. Her first children's book, Alego, is an authentic introduction to Inuit Tradition and lifestyle - a nominee for the 2009 Governor General's Award for children's literature illustration. Alego is an autobiographical tale (written and illustrated by Teevee) about adventure and discovery along the seashore; for the first time, a young girl goes clam-digging with her grandmother. (en)
