Paomee Komangapik

Paomee Komangapik was born in 1943. She grew up in the area of Igloolik, and moved to Pond Inlet in 1966. Her testimony includes information on the dog slaughter. She states that her husband’s dogs were shot over a period of three years, and that by 1969 they were all dead. Paomee notes that the dogs had got loose, and had gone to find food outside the police station. She states that she had never heard an announcement that all loose dogs would be shot. Following this, they had no means of transportation. Her husband continued to hunt, going along with others until he was able to acquire his own skidoo.
