Simeonie Emikotailuk

Simeonie Emikotailuk was born in 1951 in South Camp, a camp community near Sanikiluaq. His testimony includes information on the settlement of his family in South Camp,and later North Camp (Sanikiluaq). Simeonie remembers that his father was told by an Inuk administrator that if they did not settle in South Camp, the family would be denied family allowance. Simeonie remembers that, in 1970, people were told to relocate to North Camp because the government could not manage two camps at once. They were promised that the rent would remain the same. Simeonie recalls an episode when an RCMP officer shot one of his father’s dogs.
