Tayara Tunnillie


Tayara Tunnillie was born in 1934 near Cape Dorset (Kinngait). Her testimony includes information about dogs being shot on two occasions at Nurutaq, the outpost camp where she lived with her family. The dogs were shot by RCMP officers wearing ordinary clothes. After the second killing, her family moved to Cape Dorset (Kinngait) by boat. She also mentions that the dogs of her brother-in-law, Samajuali Tunili, were shot while he was visiting the community for re-supply.
