TUKIKI MANUMIE

1952-2017

Tukiki’s easily recognized carvings used the basic shapes of hands, claws and antlers as motifs , carving the appendages into bird and animal heads that expressed his vision of the natural world as being interconnected and interrelated.

Tukiki’s work is included in many prominent museums and private collections throughout Canada and he had a strong following in Germany where he travelled to attend one of his solo exhibitions in 1988.

Tukiki’s parents, Davidee and Paunichea as well as his brothers, Axangayu Shaa and Qavavau Manomie are also artists.

Tukiki was a gregarious and good – humoured man who always had a friendly smile and an amusing story to tell.
