Joanassie Manning was born on June 6, 1967 in Cape Dorset and has lived there all his life. He started carving at the age of twenty, and credits his grandfather, the renowned Cape Dorset carver Osuitok Ipeelee, as a major influence. His mother, Annie Manning, has worked for years as a translator for English and Inukitut and is also well versed in the art of sewing and doll making.
Joanassie has developed a strong personal style in recent years; his sculptures are skillfully executed, with careful composition, and show a fine attention to detail.

As goddess of the ocean, Sedna sets strict rules about the proper way to treat the animals of the hunt, which the Inuit require for sustenance. This includes proper treatment of the animals’ spirit when killed for food. If she feels the rules have been broken, she cuts off the supply of food. When this happens, the Inuit tribal shaman is required to take a mystical journey to the bottom of the ocean to speak to the goddess. It is considered the most dangerous journey an Inuit shaman is called upon to make.
Upon arrival at the bottom of the sea the shaman is required to comb Sedna’s hair, because Sedna has no fingers to comb it herself, and to find out what the tribe has done wrong that the food has been cut off. The shaman then makes a deal with Sedna, promising that if the tribe corrects whatever transgressions it has made, the goddess will return their food supply. The shaman then returns to the tribe with the list of things the goddess requires to be done to get the food back.
