Leah Natanine

Leah Natanine was born in 1957. Her testimony includes information about the shooting of one of her father’s dogs. She witnessed this as a child. After the dog was shot, her father was told that if he did not send his children to school, all of his dogs would be shot. Her parents sent her to school every week, but they did not send her little sister because they thought she was too young. Leah believes that all of her father’s dogs were eventually shot. She also describes the health evacuation she experienced as a young child with her little sister. She remembers being tied to her bed. She spent two years away and could no longer speak Inuktitut when she went back to her camp.
