CA EDM RG-8 · Fonds · 1892 - 2016

Fonds consists of minutes, reports, correspondence, invoices, clippings, scrapbooks, bylaws, contracts, minutes, and records relating to voter and census enumeration.

An order has been imposed on the material. The arrangement includes multiple series. The first 10 (RG-8.0 - RG-8.9) were processed in the 1970s and 1980s. Due to the size of the collection, the processing archivist decided to create a new division for each accession. From the 1990s the records were processed and arranged based on function, as reflected from RG-8.10 onwards.

Qaqaq Ashoona, also known as Kaka, was a renowned hunter and sculptor. He was born on August 18, 1928 in Ikerrasak camp, Baffin Island, NWT, and was the eldest son of Inuk artist Pitseolak Ashoona. Qaqaq's sculptures gained recognition for their monumental and powerful portrayal of animals, humans, and spirits. Notably, his works were characterized by their compactness and bold forms. In 1953, his sculptures were showcased at the Coronation Exhibition in London, England, marking his first international exposure. Subsequently, he held his first solo exhibition at the Gallery of the Arctic in Victoria, British Columbia in 1973. His artistic achievements continued to be widely exhibited and celebrated both in Canada and internationally. He died November 2, 1996 in Cape Dorset, NWT.
