Ottokie Samayualie is the son of the talented local artists Johnny and Kuluajuke Tunnillee. It is not surprising that Ottokie has followed the same artistic path, as in Nunavut, artistic talent is passed on through the family rather than taught in an art academy.
Ottokie Samayualie takes great care in choosing his stone. His carvings are made of the finest serpentine of varying green shades, and then smoothed and polished to best exhibit the lustre of the stone.
Born on June 17, 1980 in Cape Dorset, NU. Nationality is Inuit
