Paul Tassugat was born in 1944. His testimony includes information about health evacuations he experienced and about the importance of dogs for Inuit. He was sent down south for TB treatment at a very young age, and when he came back he could no longer speak Inuktitut. His experience during treatment felt like jail. His father gave him his dogs, but when he came back the dogs had been killed. He compares traditional learning and school learning. He also mentions that he does not get any pension for his disability.
