QTAB08EN

Juda Taqtu was born near Arctic Bay (Ikpiarjuk) around 1936. His testimony includes information about the conditions of his move to the community of Arctic Bay. Juda remembers that the Inuit were enticed to move into houses with low rent. His dogs were shot by an RCMP officer. The loss of his dogs made him helpless and dramatically affected his ability to hunt. He regrets that the custom of sharing food is gradually declining.
