Akeego Killiktee was born in 1955 near Kangirsujjuaq, an outpost camp near Kimmirut. Her testimony contains memories of being sent south to Moose Factory and of a series of dog shootings that occurred in her camp when she was 18 years old. She witnessed the events, but as a teenager she did not know how to react. The shootings were done by two Inuit, Matu and his father, who were following orders they were given. After the dogs were killed, Akeego remembers walking with her father to go hunting. Akeego made carvings and she and her father shared the cost of a skidoo.
