Lucassie Echalook

Inuit

Inukjuak, Quebec, Canada

(1942- )

Lucassie Echalook was born on August 9, 1942 at a small hunting camp situated not far from Inukjuak on the shores of Hudson Bay. Lucassie did not attend school; instead, he spent his childhood being taught hunting skills by his father. He remembers the hardships which his family endured following his father’s death in 1950; much of this time he spent hungry and improperly clothed. Eventually Lucassie married Martha Aculiak, and they now have five children.
