Annie Pootoogook was born in Cape Dorset and died recently in Ottawa. She was a ground-breaking Inuit artist.
In 2006, she won the prestigious Sobey Art Award. Her work was exhibited internationally, such as in Germany at Documenta, and in New York at The National Museum of the American Indian.
Her death at the age of 47 is very sad, and a huge loss. Rest in peace, Ms Annie Pootoogook.
