The Igloo Tag Trademark
The Igloo Tag Trademark is an internationally recognized symbol that denotes handmade, original artwork made by Inuit artists in Canada. Established in 1958, the Trademark is now managed by the Inuit Art Foundation. The appearance of the Igloo Tag on an artist profile means they have had the Trademark applied to their artwork.



Ekidlua Teevee is a carver from Kinngait (Cape Dorset), NU. Teevee comes from a highly artistic family, and learned to carve from his relative Napachie Ashoona. Teevee is inspired by his observations of animals on the land and by his family, particularly his mother Ningiukulu Teevee and great-uncle Kiawak Ashoona, OC, RCA. The unusual and conceptual often make appearances in his work, such as the work he made to commemorate northern dog slaughter. Teevee was most recently exhibited in “The Unexpected” at Feheley Fine Arts in Toronto, ON, in 2012.View Long Biography and Citations
