The Archer is one of Niviaksiak's iconic images. The archer's intense concentration on the flock of birds overhead is palpable.

Niviaksiak shows us several vignettes from fishing camp, spearing fish through holes in the ice. Niviaksiak was one of the first printmakers in Cape Dorset with whom Houston worked closely.
