Broken Promises

The High Arctic Relocation

DVD - 2006
Rate this:
In 1953, Inuit from Port Harrison, now Inukjuak, Quebec, were relocated to new settlements in Resolute Bay and Grise Fiord, in the Northwest Territories, only one of a series of relocations. A slump in the fur market, the Inuit's chief source of income, and a need to increase settlement in the Arctic to protect Canada's sovereignty, were factors in the government's decision. Archival footage and interviews with survivors tell of the hardships the Inuit endured.
