Yesterday we were able to reach by telephone one of the Inuit who was forcibly removed by the Americans in 1953. Hisname is Uusaqqak Qujaukitsoq. He is now the president of a group called Hingitaq ’53, which is translated either asThe Organization of the Relocated People from Thule, or simply as The Abandoneds.

This is his first interview for American radio. He is translated by his son, Vittus.

Tape:

  • Uusaqqak Qujaukitsoq, president Hingitaq ’53 (The Organization of the Relocated People from Thule, orsimply, The Abandoneds); his son, Vittus Qujaukitsoq, translates.
