Abstract
Kenojuak Ashevak celebrated the birth of the new territory with “Siilavut, Nunavut” or “Our Environment, Our Land.” A spectacular lithograph showing a globe of finely rendered Arctic animals surrounded by setting moons and rising suns, Ashevak’s print reminds us that the animals, the land and the environment hadn’t changed, only the way they would be governed: now by an Inuit leadership recognized by the federal government. Geoghegan, John. “Twenty Creative Years." Nunatsiaq News, March 29, 2019.https://nunatsiaq.com/stories/article/twenty-creative-years/
