Nikotai Mills

Nikotai Mills was the daughter of Tudlik and sister to Latcholassie Akesuk, both artists. She moved from Cape Dorset to Moose Factory in the late 1960s where she resided on a farm with her husband, a retired Canadian military officer. In the early 1990s, she returned to Cape Dorset, where she produced artwork depicting loons and owls. Nikotai’s artwork has been exhibited at the Canadian Guild of Crafts in Quebec, and is represented in the Canadian Museum of History’s collection.
