Mosesie was born in Iqaluit but raised in Cape Dorset. He began carving at age eleven, learning under his father, the well-known carver Paulassie Pootoogook. Mosesie’s late mother, Ishuhungitok, was also an artist, and his brother, Anakadlak, is a carver. He sometimes collaborates on pieces with his father, with whom he learned carving techniques. Mosesie most often depicts seals, walrus and dancing bears in serpentine, a stone similar in composition to jade and found on the southern end of Nunavut’s Baffin Island. Mosesie’s work has been shown in exhibitions such as ‘Singing & Dancing & Playing’ and ‘Small Sculptures by Great Artists’, Feheley Fine Arts, Toronto (1997 and 1996), ‘Our Land Transforming: Celebrating the Enduring Spirit of the Inuit’, Arctic Raven Gallery, Friday Harbor, WA (1995) and ‘Miniaturen’, Inuit Galerie, Mannheim, Germany (1995).

An interesting fact about the Three Sisters - Corn, Beans and Squash - is that they are interdependent of one another. Beans grow up the Corn stalks and add the nutrients to the soil and Squash is planted in between the corn to keep weeds out.
