Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETM3RIDGE HERALD Tuciclny, AuguM 22. 1972 Eskimo meeting Hold: Government interference caused N.W.T. (CI'> Government inter- ference has worked severe eco- nomic hardship on a group of Eskimo people in nortlieni Labrador, the annual meeting of the Eskimo Brotherhood of Canada was told during Die weekend. Anderous Tolnvinik, a rwi- dcnt of the consial village of Makkovik, about 130 miles northeast of Goose Bay, Labr- ador, said his people were liv- ing until 1959 at Hebron, other community about 260 miles further up the coast. There, he said, wildlife abounded and the villagers were able lo meet all their fi nancial needs. They fished char commercially and caribou wort' plentiful as staple source of food. "I could pay our rent for the government houses and no one went hungry. all had Tint in 1959, the government moved the roughly 400 resi- dents of Hebron to .sclllemcnts farther down ttie coast, many of them to Makkovik, where supply ships and aircraft had a shorter distance to (ravel. Residents at Nutak, about CO miles from Hebron, were also moved during Hie 1950s to more accessible settlements down the coa.st. At Makkovik, Mr. Tolavinik said, his people have lost finan- cially because jjame in the area is scarce fit the best of times and somu .species such as ca- ribou are almost non-cxisleni in the wintertime. "Our people arc getting poor. They .sometime have to go hun- gry bcciui.sc they have no money and can't get supplies on credit." Mr. Tolavinik said the people want badly to move back to Hebron but the government won't agree to transport sup- lilies over the longer distance. "That's the excuse we get." As it result, residents have grown bitter at government agencies and personnel, said. Ctiarlin Kadloraok, a confer- ence delegate from Uelchtr Islands, N.W.T., said there is resentment among residents of his area of the Arctic. "The government seems al- ways to walk over people." He was particularly critical of hunting unil trapping li- cences which northerners are now required to obtain from the government. Licences might fine in southern, Canada, IHS said, but "the government doesn't have any right to manage wildlife in Eskimo lands." Charlie Wntt of Fort Chimo, Que., president of the Northern ebec Jnuil Association, said his organization was started ns a direct result of "pcopto sit- ting .somewhere in an office down south and telling w wliat lo do." Tygak A. C. Curlcy, president of the Eskimo Brotherhood, said a general conference of Eskimo and government repre- sentatives could IHJ held to deal with limiting and fislilng com- plaints by northerners. Ho wcmld try to set this up at some Lime in the future. Some delegates also fialrJ laws are enforced to zealously in some communities.
