Levi Evic was born in 1947 in Illungayut, an outpost camp near Pangnirtung. His testimony contains information on the circumstances of the evacuation of his family to Pangnirtung, including the shooting of some of his father’s dogs. While they still lived in a camp, an RCMP officer told his father that he would shoot his dogs the next day. His father decided to leave the camp at night to save his dogs. When the family eventually came back to the camp for supplies, five of the dogs were shot. Levi remembers that people experienced hunger after being moved into the community.
