Osuitok Ipeelee (earlier known as Oshaweektok) created this print of four musk oxen racing across the frozen tundra. It was part of the first graphics collection produced by Cape Dorset Graphics of the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, an organization started in 1959 to secure recognition of Inuit artists and economic opportunities for Northern Indigenous people. This print is in numerous public collections including the Art Gallery of Canada and the Brooklyn Museum. This print is not original and likely a government issued reproduction.
