Ejetsiak (Zeke) Ejetsiak was born in 1943 between Kinngait and Iqaluit. As a young boy, he lived with his father. They moved to Kimmirut and Iqaluit to be with their in-laws. When Ejetsiak went down south to get some training to become a heavy equipment operator, all of his father’s dogs were shot. He remembers seeing RCMP officers shoot dogs that were loose and also dogs that were tied up.
