Jacobie Panipak

Jacobie Panipak was born in 1935. His testimony includes information about the move of his family to Clyde River and about dog slaughter. He remembers that people in his camp were told to move on a particular date, otherwise their dogs would be killed. He remembers that he carefully kept his dogs tied up in the community but some of them were shot anyways. Jacobie worked at the school and for the DEW Line site as a mechanic. He claims that his family was not compensated while he was away for training. He is still trying to get compensation for the work he did in 1958-1959 when he built the airstrip, which is still in use.
