Abraham Anghik Ruben

(1951) Order of Canada

Abraham Anghik Ruben was born in 1951, near Paulatuk, Northwest Territories. His family was engaged in hunting and fishing along the western Arctic coast. At the age of eight, he was sent away to residential school and for the next 11 years was separated from his family and culture except for two months each summer. Much to the sadness of his parents, he was soon unable to speak his native Inuktitut fluently. Upon leaving the residential school system at the age of 18, he found himself in a cultural "no man's land". He had always had a strong interest in art, which became the avenue through which he was able to reconnect with his cultural roots. In November of 1971, he met Ronald Senungetuk, Associate Professor of Design at the University of Alaska's Native Arts Centre, and was able to apprentice under him the following year.In his style and choice of materials, Anghik is an innovator, and his work reflects the complexity and craftsmanship of a contemporary master. Anghik's work is on view at museums and public galleries across Canada, from the Royal Ontario Museum to the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa and the Winnipeg Art Gallery. He currently resides in Salt Spring, BC.



About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
