Irene Akhiatak

Irene Akhiaktak learned to sew at the very young age of 11 or 12 while out at summer outpost camps. One of the many little things she learned to sew were ookpiks and still to this day is one of her favourite things to sew. Irene loves to listen to gospel music, watch drummers & dancers perform, and dance to fiddle music. The outdoors out on the land gives her peace and she enjoys traditional hunting of animals for her meals.
