Ningiukulu grew up in the community of Kinngait, formally known as Cape Dorset . Just like a lot of children up north, she loved to play outside when she was growing up. When Ningiukulu was in elementary school, there was an elder that would go there to tell stories about Inuit legends. The legends gave her images in her mind that soon translated into drawings. That’s when she became so very interested drawing, using different media.
