Alashua Aningmiuq (1914–1972) was an Inuit graphic artist and a carver in Nunavut, Canada working in the 1950s and 1960s.

Aningmiuq was born in 1914 in the Northwest Territories (now Nunavut). Up until 1962, when the family moved to Cape Dorset, Aningmiuq, her husband Peter, and their sons Jolly, Salomonie, and Kavavau lived a traditional nomadic life. After settling in Cape Dorset, Alashua and Peter began working with the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative as a graphic artist and a carver. Alashua's three sons are also carvers.
