Birth of Peter Freuchen Ittinuar - Jan 19, 1950
Peter Freuchen Ittinuar, the first Inuk MP, was born at Chesterfield Inlet, N.W.T. In 1962, Ittinuar was chosen to take part in the “Eskimo experiment,” a federal program that sent Inuit children to live with southern white families in such cities as Ottawa. Ittinuar’s story was part of the 2009 documentary Experimental Eskimos. After leaving Parliament in 1984, Ittinuar served in Nunavut’s government. He is a long-time Indigenous rights activist.
