Alina Tungilik is an Inuit artist from Kugaaruk (previously known as Pelly Bay), Nunavut. She has been carving in the traditional Kugaaruk style for many years and works primarily with natural materials such as ivory, antler, and whalebone. While her subject matter varies, it usually revolves around traditional everyday Inuit life.

Tungilik is best known for her delightful and delicate scenes, often consisting of a whalebone base populated with ivory figures.
