Moses Oyukuluk

Moses Oyukuluk was born in 1950. He moved to Arctic Bay (Ikpiarjuk) in 1966. His testimony includes information about the way policies on loose dogs in Arctic Bay affected people. He remembers that his family was told that if the children did not attend school the family would no longer receive child benefits. He believes that their quality of life was lower after the move. Moses recalls that loose dogs were shot by the Inuk constable. The owners were not warned. He remembers how the loss of lead dogs affected their owners. Moses lost a few dogs, but eventually acquired another dog-team.
