Tommy Tatatuapik Joseph was born in 1937. He lives in Arctic Bay (Ikpiarjuk). His testimony includes information about the loss of his dogs. He moved to various communities before coming back to Arctic Bay. In 2003, he witnessed two RCMP officers shooting three of his dogs after they got loose and began roaming around his house. The loss of his dogs dramatically affected his ability to use his dog-team, which he uses to earn a living by taking sport hunters out.
