Simon Idlout

Simon Idlout was born in 1945 in Kuvinaluk, an outpost camp on an island off of Resolute Bay. His testimony includes a description of two dog shootings he witnessed as a young man in Resolute Bay and Taloyoak. Simon testifies that the foreign laws imposed on Inuit, as well as some individual attitudes and inexperienced RCMP officers, contributed to current tensions in the community. He calls for the participation of the RCMP in the necessary healing process that the Inuit are undertaking.
