Nunavik community of Akulivik slowly returns to daily life after 4 violent deaths
Jun 15, 2017
There are no roads connecting neighbouring villages across Quebec’s vast northern region, but after word spread of the tragic events that left four dead over the weekend in Akulivik, friends and relatives flew in from all over.
Mususie Ainalik, father to one of the victims and uncle to two others, lives in a neighbouring town, but came to be with family.
“I came to give support, but instead they ended up supporting me,” said Ainalik, in an interview in Akulivik, about 1,700 kilometres from Montreal.
By Wednesday, many were returning home, including Ainalik.
