Rhoda Tunraq shares information about the relocation of her parents and grandparents from Devon Island to Arctic Bay (Ikpiarjuk) in 1948. She believes that the relocation was initiated by the RCMP. Her mother used to tell her that people were homesick and that they died prematurely after the relocation. Rhoda was affected by the stories she heard. This is why she wanted to testify before the commission.
