Mina Eyaituq

Mina Eyaituq was born in 1951 in a camp near Sanikiluaq. Her testimony includes memories of camp life and tending the dog team with her father. She provides a description of the relocation process her family went through in 1968 from South Camp to North Camp (Sanikiluaq). Mina recalls that the decision was made after a meeting with a government agent. Her parents were told that the government would no longer assist them in any way if they refused to relocate. She remembers that, while settling in North Camp, her father’s dogs were killed and her family did not receive assistance for housing.
