Mad dogs and (mostly) Englishmen: colonial relations, commodities, and the fate of Inuit sled dogs / Frank James Tester.

Title: Mad dogs and (mostly) Englishmen: colonial relations, commodities, and the fate of Inuit sled dogs / Frank James Tester.
Author(s): Tester, Frank James.
Date: 2010.
In: Études Inuit = Inuit Studies. (2010.), Vol. 34(2) (2010)
Abstract: Discusses work of Qikiqtani Truth Commission created by Qikiqtani Inuit Association to examine events affecting Qikiqtanimiut between 1950-1980, in particular fate of Inuit sled dogs. Loss of dogs was both real and symbolic of cultural transformations that concerned Inuit elders. As Inuit relocated to settlements, sled dogs became liability for Arctic administration. Dog Ordinance of the Northwest Territory, intended to protect people from attacks, was also tool in totalising agenda of Canadian state committed to assimilating Inuit to Canadian norms, values, assumptions, rule of law, and settlement living.
