QTRB07EN

Simeonie Amagoalik was born in 1933 in an outpost camp near Inujjuaq, Quebec. His testimony includes a description of the difficult conditions of the relocation of his extended family from Inujjuaq to Resolute Bay. Simeonie recalls being pressured by the RCMP as a camp leader and being misinformed about the living conditions in Resolute Bay, especially regarding game availability and hunting restrictions. After the move, half of his dogs were shot by an RCMP officer while he was hospitalized in Edmonton.
