S/Cst. Etidloi had recently been transferred to Cape Dorset from Clyde River. He just moved there with his family and their food was running low. A member from the detachment needed to go to Kiugak Ashoona and S/Cst. Etidloi was one of the few locals who knew how to get there. S/Cst. Etidloi wanted to do some walrus hunting along the way. He drowned, when the boat he was on (with three others) was engulfed in nearly blizzard conditions. S/Cst. Etidloi was married to Kooyuke and they had two children. S/Cst. Etidloi’s body was never found.
Commemorated on Page 163 of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Honour Roll Book.
