Rankin Inlet’s hunters association takes issue with statements made at Nunavut Planning Commission hearing
Members of the Kangiqliniq Hunters and Trappers Organization believe they finally have the attention of Kivalliq Inuit Association after filing a petition calling for KIA to remove its president, Kono Tattuinee.
The hunters launched the petition Oct. 12 and since then, 202 KIA members have signed it: 100 each from Baker Lake and Rankin Inlet, and one each from Naujaat and Coral Harbour.
The petition asserts that Tattuinee is not properly representing KIA members, said the hunters organization’s executive director Andre Aokaut.
“[KIA’s] not listening to their beneficiaries, their people — ourselves along with other community members,” he said in an interview.
