From the French resistance to Nunavut: The love story between Gabriel Gély and the Inuit

CBC | December 31, 2020

Categories: news

Gabriel Gély, a French artist who lived alongside the Inuit for much of his life, passed away at his home in Selkirk, Manitoba on November 27, 2020. Gély was a longtime advocate for the recognition of Inuit art, and is lovingly remembered by the community. According to his close friend Michael Shouldice, "he talked to everyone, and everybody wanted to talk to him. Walking from one end of Eskimo Point to the other took forever if you walked with him because everyone wanted to shake his hand, share a good story, a smile. People loved him and he loved this community. He spoke well of them all the time."
