Biography Milo Minock
Milo Minock is known throughout Alaska for his detailed paintings and drawings of traditional Eskimo life on the lower Yukon River, Alaska. Born in either 1912 or 1917 in Pilot Station, he attended a Catholic mission school at Holy Cross, where he was probably introduced to drawing and painting. In the mid to late 1940s, he began selling ink drawings and oil paintings, most representing traditional Yup'ik Eskimo culture and ceremonies.
His most active period as an artist was the mid 1950s through the early or mid 1980s. At least one hundred drawings and paintings from this period have been identified. Many of his pieces were sold by Alaska Native Arts and Crafts Inc. of Juneau Alaska. He died in Anchorage in 1996.
