David Kalluk

QTAB02EN

David Kalluk was born in 1945 in an outpost camp near Resolute Bay. His testimony contains information about his family's move to Arctic Bay (Ikpiarjuk) and the dog slaughter. Although he never witnessed the slaughter himself, David remembers that loose dogs were shot in the community. He notes that mental conditions eventually arose from the pain caused by relocation and homesickness. His relatives killed a family member who had a mental condition and was a threat to others. David's family still lives with the stigma of this tragic event.
