is an Iñupiaq artist and designer from Qikiqtaġruk (Kotzebue, Alaska). Qaulluq comes from a long line of traditional skin sewers, including her Aana Lena Suuyuk Hanna and great-great grandmother Lena Suuyuk Sours. She believes in the importance of living by Iñupiat Iḷitqusiat (traditional values that make us who we are) and the responsibility we each have to pass on traditional knowledge by teaching others. Qaulluq is honored to have been taught this beautiful tradition and knowledge passed down by the matriarchs in her family going back many generations, which encourages creativity and innovation.
