Elizabeth Kyak

Elizabeth Kyak was born in 1957. In her testimony, Elizabeth states that she had more food than other families in Pond Inlet because her parents worked for the RCMP. She states that children were made to go to school, and that if they did not their families were denied family allowance. She also remembers that the Inuit were encouraged not to eat traditional foods, and that many continued to do so discreetly. Elizabeth states that she felt that the Inuit were never respected by the white people.
