This is the story of the woman who wrote her biography in "The Long Exile," a gut-wrenching story of Inuit families conned by the federal government into moving to Elsmere Island in the Far North, an inhospitable land where they proceeded to starve, without the promised help or right of return. She's also granddaughter of the filmmaker of the early hit movie, "Nanook of the North." Everyone should become familiar with this part of Canadian history in order to better understand current events.
