Indigenous Initiatives Book Club - Life Among The Qallunaat

April 9 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm PDT

We invite BCIT faculty and staff to join us as we explore Indigenous history and experiences shared through stories told or authored by Indigenous peoples.

Life Among the Qallunaat is the story of Mini Aodla Freeman’s experiences growing up in the Inuit communities of James Bay and her journey in the 1950s from her home to the strange land and stranger customs of the Qallunaat, those living south of the Arctic. Her extraordinary story, sometimes humorous and sometimes heartbreaking, illustrates an Inuit woman’s movement between worlds and ways of understanding. It also provides a clear-eyed record of the changes that swept through Inuit communities in the 1940s and 1950s.
