Adele Sigguk inspects an ancient Tuniq footprint during our Elder & Youth camp May 2014, about 20 km west of Kugaaruk.
According to the elders oral history passed down from generations, The Tuniq in the area were driven/scared away, after the tuniit killed the women and youth, while the men were out seal hunting in the winter.
Sources can also be obtained from Knud Rasmussen’s Netsilik diaries, Rasmussen traveled the northwest passage on land/sea ice, by dog team, after Amundsen’s voyage.
