Lottie Cookie

Lottie Cookie was born in 1954 in South Camp, a camp community near Sanikiluaq. Her testimony includes memories of the relocation of her family from South Camp to North Camp (Sanikiluaq) in the summer of 1970. She recalls that her father had to kill all of his dogs prior to the move because they could not be transported on the canoe. Upon arrival in the North Camp, Lottie's father became a carver in order to support his family, since he could no longer go hunting with his dog team.
