Top of page

Seven videos that depict traditional Inuit ways on the land. Volume 3 contains: Eskimo Summer (20 min.) A snapshot of summer for one Inuit community in the eastern Arctic: hunting polar bears and belugas, building stone weirs to fish in shallow waters, trading at the Hundson's Bay post, and unloading the supply ship during its annual visit. (1943) Land of the Long Day (37 min. 57 sec.) An account of the lives of the Tununermiut people at their summer hunting territory around Alukseevee Island, Pond Inlet. Summer, with its endless day, is a time of fun and relaxation--but also time to lay in a good story of food for the long winter ahead. (1952)
