Ludy Padluk was born in 1943 in an outpost camp near Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet). His testimony contains a description of the conditions of his family's move to Resolute Bay in 1958. His father had arranged the move with the camp leader. In 1964, Ludy was hospitalized after he had an accident. While he was away, all of his dogs were shot. He remembers being told by the RCMP that skidoos were not to be used for hunting. Lootie was later elected as an MLA and was involved in territorial politics for 20 years.
