QTIQ38EN

Henry Boaz was born at Nottingham Island in 1932. He grew up at Resolution Island and his parents were employed at the DEW Line site. He recalls that at this time the Inuit and the Qallunaat lived in similar housing structures, although in different areas. He moved to Kimmirut in 1950 following his family’s abandonment by a RCMP escort. Henry’s testimony includes information on dogs, and information related to his own lead dog being shot by the RCMP in 1958.
