Pauta Saila was born in the early 1920s at Nurataaq, an outpost camp near Kinngait. His testimony includes information about life in the outpost camps and dog rearing. On two occasions he lost dogs to shooting. The first time his dogs were killed by other Inuit to help him heal, as they believed it would save him. The second time his dogs were shot by the police. After that he no longer had any more dogs and used ski-doos. He and his wife currently support many of their grandchildren.
