INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY

Established in 1974, with a mandate to support Canadian artists, Canada House Gallery has become a national leader in sharing the artwork of Canada’s Indigenous artists to an international audience.

Located in Banff National Park - a UNESCO World Heritage Site – Canada House Gallery acknowledges the Treaty of 1877, Treaty Seven, and the Treaty of 1895 between the salmon and buffalo peoples. There is deep and enduring memory of this valley held by Ktunaxa (too-naa-xha), Secwepemc (sha-whep-mak, or Shuswap), Métis, Dene & Tsuu T'ina, Mountain Cree, Siksika & Blackfoot, and Stoney Nakoda peoples. The Government of Canada, in cooperation with Indigenous organizations, chose the Summer Solstice to recognize and celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day.

Join us in honouring Indigenous heritage and culture through this exquisite exhibition of curated artworks by some of Canada’s most prominent Indigenous artists. Northwest Coast, Cree, Ojibwe, Dene Suline/Saulteaux, and Inuit artworks and cultural stories are showcased in this exceptional exhibition.

All artwork subject to presale.

Kananginak has been involved with drawing and printmaking since the late 1950's when the West Baffin Co-operative first initiated the graphic arts program at Cape Dorset. Kananginak's first print, a collaborative image with his father, Pootoogook, was included in the first catalogued collection of Cape Dorset prints in 1959. Since that time, Kananginak’s work has been included in almost every annual collection, and has been interpreted in many different print media - copper engraving, stonecut, stencil, lithography and etching. Kananginak was an accomplished stonecut printmaker himself - in the early years he often proofed and editioned his own work.

Kananginak and his siblings grew up in different camp areas on south Baffin Island. Their main camp was Ikirisaq where their father, Pootoogook, was the respected camp leader. Kananginak married Shooyoo from Cape Dorset in the mid-1950's. They lived at Ikirisaq until 1958 when they moved to Cape Dorset because of Pootoogook's failing health.

Kananginak has been a prominent community leader. He was instrumental in the formation of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative, and served for many years as President of its Board of Directors. He is also a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts.

In 1978, the World Wildlife Commission released a limited edition portfolio of works in which four of Kananginaks' images were included. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions, in both public institutions and commercial galleries. He is also a notable sculptor.

In 1997, Kananginak was commissioned by the Governor General of Canada, Romeo Leblanc, to construct an inuksuq in Cape Dorset, which was then dismantled and shipped to Ottawa. Kananginak and his son Johnny were then invited to Ottawa to re-assemble the inuksuq on the grounds of Rideau Hall as part of a tribute to Native people in Canada.

From the beginning, Kananginak has represented Arctic wildlife in his work, often monumental in scale. He is especially capable at drawing the many species of birds that frequent the Arctic. He has also done many memorable images illustrating the material culture of the Inuit, and narrative drawings of camp and hunting scenes. This year Kananginak is well represented by five images that demonstrate his broad range as a graphic artist. The majestic Owl on Sealskin (2009-2) is monumental both in size and execution, and represents Kananginak at his most original. Dorset at Twilight (2009-3) and Pootoogook Returns (2009-4) are beautiful, small lithographs representing Kananginak's obvious affection for his family, his community and it's unique history.

Born on January 1, 1935 in Ikerrasak Camp. Died on November 24, 2010. Nationality is Inuit
