Sakiassie lived for many years in Tikirak camp near Cape Dorset. This
traditional life kept him busy hunting and fishing most of the year, so that
he found time to draw only in the summer months. Around 1956, he went south
for tuberculosis treatment, before returning to settle in Cape Dorset in 1962.
