Johnny Meko Jr.

Johnny Meko Jr. was born in 1954 in an HBC outpost camp. He was relocated in the 1960s to the community under government orders. He remembers that some dogs were tied up when he was young. He left the community for TB treatment as a child and could only speak English when he returned, and then had to relearn English when he started school. He recalls home life and memories from his school years in Churchill. Before he left the community there had been lots of dogs, but when he came back there were no more dogs.
