Tagoona Qavavouq

Tagoona Qavavouq testified before the commission to support the testimony of her husband, Lisha Qavavouq. They live in Arctic Bay (Ikpiarjuk). She recalls stories about relocation that Shappa, her husband’s uncle, used to tell them while they were living with him. Shappa was relocated from Devon Island to Arctic Bay. He stated that people were suffering from homesickness and from poor communication with other relocated people settled in Arctic Bay. Tagoona believes that homesickness caused people to die prematurely.
