Martha Tikivik

QTIQ15EN

Martha Tikivik was born in an outpost camp in 1956. Her family was moved to Clyde River and remained there for six years at the request of the HBC. Following Clyde River, Martha moved back to Iqaluit by boat. Her testimony includes information about the establishment of Apex. Martha recalls loose dogs being killed, but she remembers no incidences of mass slaughters or of tied up dogs being shot. She speaks of a child being killed by a dog team from Cape Dorset, and of the generally poor health of dogs due to inadequate food.
