Alice Masak French (June 29, 1930 – July 5, 2013) was a Ninatakmuit Inuit author who lived in Souris, Manitoba, Canada. An Inuvialuit, she was born at Baillie Island in the Northwest Territories. Her work focuses on the experiences of Inuit women, and discusses the struggle to hold on to Native tradition. Her My Name is Masak is an autobiographical tale about her youth in a boarding school, while The Restless Nomad (1992) continues the story up until she moves to Ireland.[1]
