Biography from Alaska State Museum:
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.

Scholars and collectors throughout North America appreciate the style and detail of Milo Minock's work as a rich visual record of Yup'ik culture. On the Yukon/Kuskoquim Delta, he is remembered for his work over three decades to document and preserve Yup'ik traditions through his art.

Through his work as an art instructor in Bethel, Milo Minock helped train a new generation in art and Yup'ik culture. As an artist, his greatest influence was upon his son Patrick, who attended art school at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, and who, like his father, specializes in ink drawings. Most importantly, directly and indirectly, Minock helped set the stage for, and participated in, the revitalization of Yup'ik ceremonialism and dancing of the 1970s and 80s.
