Goteleak Judea

QTKM05EN

Goteleak Judea was born in an outpost camp near Kimmirut around 1940. His testimony includes memories of life in the camp and hunting trips by dog-team with his grandfather. Goteleak recalls various incidents of dog slaughtering. He remembers an RCMP officer approaching his outpost camp by boat and shooting two lead dogs on the beach without any warning. His family refused to relocate to Kimmirut for two years. They finally decided to make the move when they were told that they would not receive family allowance if they stayed in their camp. Goteleak's uncle, who had received an order from an RCMP officer, asked him to shoot all the dogs (11). Goteleak shot the dogs, even though they were tied up.
