About Dreque Dreque

Dracc Dreque is the pen name of Gideon Enutsia Etorolopiaq who was born on January 14, 1964 in Iqaluit, Baffin Island, Nunavut, to a large extended family with numerous brothers, sisters, stepbrothers and stepsisters. He was orphaned at an early age when both his parents died after eating spoiled seal meat and he left school after grade four.

Although he spent time in prison as an adolescent and young adult, he has not been incarcerated since 1983 when he was released from Stony Mountain Penitentiary. Dracc began writing his autobiography in 1998 and he now lives in Winnipeg where he works at a variety of jobs, reads books and adds to his memoirs.
