Theresa Muctar

Theresa Muctar was born in Wager Bay in the Kivalliq region in 1930. She grew up living between Repulse Bay and Hall Beach. Theresa’s brother Mala worked as an RCMP Special Constable. He agreed to the position under coercion. Theresa recalls periods of starvation while growing up, and her father died of starvation. She alludes to periods of cannibalism. She wonders if conditions would have been better and family members would not have died had her brother not been taken away.
