Koonoo Oyukuluk

Koonoo Oyukuluk was born in 1946 near Arctic Bay (Ikpiarjuk), the community where his family later moved. His testimony includes information on camp life. Koonoo remembers that people from his camp moved so that their children could attend school. He recalls the food shortage that people suffered after the dogs were shot in the community. His own dogs were shot after he gave them to a friend who later died in a hunting accident. The dogs had eaten human flesh and became vicious. Koonoo eventually resumed hunting using another dog-team and a ski-doo.
