Ipeelie Koonoo

QTAB05EN

Ipeelie Koonoo was born in 1940 on Bylot Island, across from Pond Inlet (Mittimatalik), the community where his family moved in 1959. His testimony mostly includes information about dog slaughter. Ipeelie remembers the day he found out that his dogs were shot while he was working on a boat for the police. He was given a ski-doo and gasoline as compensation, but he later found out that ski-doos are not reliable and are expensive in the long run. Ipeelie is expecting an apology.
