Levi Alasua Pirti Smith

Inuit

Puvirnituq, Quebec, Canada

(1927-1986)

Levi took his surname from the place in which he was born, Cape Smith, a now abandoned camp about one hundred miles north of Puvirnituq. In 1955, a tuberculosis survey sent most of the population from Cape Smith to hospitals in the south. Levi was sent to a hospital for treatment for about a year, and settled in Puvirnituq upon his return.* After living in Puvirnituq for many years, Levi moved back to Cape Smith, where he died in 1986.
