Isaac Eyaituk

Isaac Eyaituk was born in a camp near Sanikiluaq called Upirngavialuk in 1957. His testimony includes childhood recollections of the relocation of his family to South Camp in 1970, and later to Sanikiluaq. He describes the conditions in which these two moves happened, especially the journey to Sanikiluaq, for which people were unprepared. Isaac recounts the way settlement in the community affected him as a young boy. He was homesick, and had difficulties adapting to community surroundings and formal education.
