Part of a series on the Netsilik Inuit as documented by the Education Development Center. In late winter when the cold is severe, the Inuit stop their trek and make camp. The men cut blocks for an igloo while the women shovel the site. During the day, the men sit patiently on the ice, waiting for seals. Film without words.
