David Kalluk was born in 1940, and lived in Pond Inlet before his relocation to Resolute Bay. His testimony includes information on traditional camp life. David's family relocated to Resolute Bay in 1959 when David was seventeen years old. He recalls that the community was home to many people who had come from northern Quebec and Pond Inlet. The community also had some Americans and Canadians who were employed at the weather station. David’s testimony includes information on dogs. He recalls that the Inuit were told by the RCMP that in order to preserve wildlife they should not have dog teams. While David recalls that they were told to tie dogs up, but he does not recall any dog shootings in the community.
