John Carmichael

John Carmichael was born and raised in Aklavik at a place called Peel River, with his one brother Fred and stepsister Elizabeth Blake. The way in which John was raised, is what he is most appreciative of today. He remembers cutting wood and hauling ice for the elders, and in return he would receive a small piece of bannock or drymeat. “We never asked for money,” he says.
