Eye of the Shaman

The Visions of Piona Keyuakjuk


David Turner


In Eye of the Shaman, author and anthropologist David Turner introduces readers to Inuit artist and visionary Piona Keyuakjuk. Over the course of a series of visits to Pangnirtung, a small town located on Baffin Island
in the territory of Nunavut, Turner came to know this remarkable individual, gaining deep insight into his life and art. Eye of the Shaman includes dozens of colour illustrations, including numerous photographs
of Piona’s sculptures as well as the complete contents of Piona’s 104-page Sketchbook. The result is a book sure to fascinate and enlighten.


 Includes a comprehensive preface by Frédéric Laugrand of Laval University that places Piona’s work in its historical and anthropological context.


“I left Pangnirtung satisfied but feeling a huge sense of responsibility to see this project through to completion. Piona wished his story told. He sees himself as carrying on the Inuit way …”
