Naujaat carver returns to his craft

Naujaat carver Matthew Shimout was in Iqaluit for the Nunavut Arts Festival on Friday, Aug. 23, marking his return to carving since suffering a stroke that forced him to relearn the skill over about six months, he says. Originally from Coral Harbour, Shimout first learned to carve at a young age from his father, Anakudlak Shimout. (Photo by Elaine Anselmi)
