Mini Aodla Freeman

Mini Aodla Freeman is an Inuk playwright, writer, poet and essayist.

She was born in July 1936 on Cape Hope Island (Nunaaluk) in James Bay, Northwest Territories (now Nunavut), Canada.

Mini Aodla was taken by the authorities to Bishop Horden Memorial School, a Canadian Indian residential school, on Moose Factory Island, Ontario.

When her family learnt of plans to have her adopted by a non-Inuit family, they enrolled her in the Sainte-Thérèse-de-l'Enfant-Jésus Residential School in Fort George (now Chisasibi), Quebec which she attended until 1952.

Shortly after leaving school, she became a tuberculosis patient at Mountain Sanatorium in Hamilton, Ontario. Provided by Wikipedia
