Peepeelee Nutaralaq

Peepeelee Nutaralaq was born in 1943. She was living in Pallavik when she was sent to Toronto in 1963 for medical treatment for tuberculosis. When Peepeelee returned from Toronto, her family had been relocated to Qikiqtarjuaq and she was sent there as well. She states that they moved because they were afraid of resisting the Qallunaaq. Peepeelee's testimony includes information on the long term effects of relocation, including a large number of suicides. For her, the most regrettable part of relocation was losing the dog teams. Peepeelee also states that she has benefitted from the healing programs.
