Note: Ittuluka’naaq had little contact with the European and Canadian traders and missionaries until her move to Baker Lake in 1961. Ittuluka’naaq’s works are simple and linear and are “stylistically similar to those of ... Anguhadluq and Parr.” Like her male contemporaries, Ittuluka’naaq’s life experiences were largely within the traditions of Inuit culture.
