Iqaluk Juralak

QTIQ10EN

Iqaluk Juralak was born in Salliq and adopted by a family in Chesterfield Inlet. In 1942, at eleven years old, she returned to Salliq to live with her father because her adopted parents were too old to take care of her. In 1959, at twenty-five years old she moved to Iqaluit. She was told to move because her father had a heart condition that required medical care. In her testimony she recalls the relocation upon the CD Howe, and her arrival in Iqaluit, where her family was provided a house, but without any furnishings. Her testimony also includes information on dog shootings. She recalls that a RCMP officer shot one of her family’s dogs that had become loose.
