Inuk elder recalls collecting bones for the war effort during the Second World War

Qapik Attagutsiak, who turns 100 in June, will be the guest of honour during a ceremony in Ottawa on Monday recognizing the role Inuit communities played collecting bones during the Second World War. Those bones were transported south and eventually used to make gunpowder, aircraft glue and other material for the war.
