Donald Ariutana

Artist Bio: 

Donald has lived in the Mackenzie Delta region all of his life. He was born and raised in Aklavik, but spent 28 years in Inuvik. He moved back to his home community when he retired.

Donald specializes in traditional handmade fish hooks, ulu knives and harpoons for hunting and fishing purposes.

From a young child, Donald and his family would make these tools to use in everyday life and prides himself for carrying on the tradition of never purchasing conventional gear to replace these items.
