About artist/note:

“Manasie Akpaliapik explained that his grandmother Paniloo believed that everything in nature had a spirit. When they gave names to the natural landmarks in their environment, they tried to see or imagine the inua of the rocks, mountains and lakes.”
The Inuit Imagination, Harold Seidelman & James Turner, Douglas & McIntyre Ltd. (Vancouver, BC), 1993, p. 91
