"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 humourous 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."--

I read the original, from the shelves of the uOttawa Morisset library, so no interview, or afterword. I would have appreciated a map of the area with placenames, as many of the names have been changed from English to Inuit, or settlements have moved. The writing is matter of fact, and very revealing. Parts of it should be mandatory for Canadian school children.
