Volume 4 contains: Kamik (14 min. 35 sec.) Kamik, sealskin boots, are a metaphor for the blending of new and old in the life of Ulayok Kaviok--a woman bred on the land, who is an expert kamik maker. Today she lives in two worlds: out on the ice and in a settlement. (1989); How to Build an Igloo (11 min. 7 sec.) We watch two Inuit men demonstrate igloo construction, from site selection to the fitting of the last block of snow. (1949)
