George Aqqigiq Koneak was born on January 3, 1931 near Quaqtaq, Quebec. In 1957, Koneak was one of four Inuit men to make a historic first appearance at an Eskimo Affairs committee meeting in Ottawa. After moving with his family to Kuujjuaq, Quebec in 1958, Koneak continued to advocate for Inuit people. Koneak was one of the signatories of the 1975 James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, a founding member of the Northern Quebec Inuit Association, and a governor of the Makivik Corporation. Koneak was honoured by the Makivik Corporation in 2006 for his work as a pioneer of relations between Inuit and non-Inuit people.
