Ulukhaktok (Holman), NT



Richard Adam Kudlak resides in Ulukhaktok (Holman), in the Inuvik Beaufort Delta region, NT. He is a hunter, artist, aspiring blacksmith and teacher. Kudlak has noted that his visual art is directly connected to the history and linguistic meaning of his community’s name, as Ulukhaktok means “the place where ulu parts are found,” and he primarily creates usable items, such as ulus and other tools. Kudlak is also interested in how Inuit tools and historical artefacts can highlight generational connections as well as help Inuit communities learn about their ancestors.View Long Biography and Citations
