Abraham Ulayuruluk

QTIG01EN

Abraham Ulayuruluk was born in 1936 near Pond Inlet. He moved permanently to Igloolik with his family when his children were required to attend school in 1955. His testimony includes information about the requirements regarding dogs in the community. He remembers that they were to be tied up even though it was not the Inuit way. He remembers untied dogs being shot while their owners were at the trading post. Ever since he lost his dogs, he has not been able to afford any another means of transportation. He also shares his views about a number of non-Inuit who come to the communities to make money and RCMP officers who are difficult to communicate with because of the language barrier.
