Note: Excerpt from Early Masters, Inuit Sculpture 1949-1955, Darlene Coward Wight, Winnipeg Art Gallery:
Amidlak’s son believes “that his father was the first to make carvings for Houston, as Amidlak had become ill in 1947 and had been asked to live in the settlement to be close to the nurse. In 1949, he returned to live in his camp. He met Houston while in Inukjuak.”
