Minnie Palliser

Inuit

Inukjuak, Quebec, Canada

(1928-2003)

Minnie and her carpenter husband George share their small renovated house with a fluctuating number of sons, daughters and grandchildren. George is the son of a Labrador Inuk named Thomassie. Thomassie was brought to Inukjuak by the Hudson’s Bay Company as an interpreter, the only indigenous person in the settlement able to speak English. He was also, according to his son, responsible for saving many people from starvation. George is obviously proud to be the son of his father, husband to his talented wife and father of their children, all of whom warrant his esteem.
