Abstract:

In 1932, the Canadian government forcibly relocated three dozen Inuit from their flourishing home on the Hudson Bay to the barren, arctic landscape of Ellesmere Island, the most northerly land mass on the planet. Among this group was Josephie Flaherty, the unrecognized half-Inuit son of filmmaker Robert Flaherty, director of Nanook of the North. The author follows three generations of the Flaherty family -- Robert, Josephie, and Josephie's daughters -- to bring this extraordinary tale of deception and harsh deprivation to life.
