Elisapie Meeka Kopalie

Elisapie Meeka Kopalie was born in 1952. Her family was relocated from a traditional camp to the community at Qikiqtarjuaq. She remembers that her parents were reluctant to move, but they felt that they had to listen to the authorities. Elisapie testifies that after relocation her father’s dogs were killed and they no longer had transportation. The family went from an abundance of food on their old hunting grounds, to being poor.
