Top of page

Seven videos that depict traditional Inuit ways on the land. Volume 5 contains: Arctic Dog Team (11 min.) When this film was made, travel in the North was unthinkable without huskies. We see the preparations for a long sled trip and learn about the lives and qualities of the dogs. (1949) Arctic Jungle (11 min.) City dwellers often dream of escaping to a more relaxed, "primitive" culture. Arctic Jungle takes up this idea, using a newsreel approach to show a glimpse of Inuit life. (1948) Arctic Hunters (17 min.) The hunting skills and techniques of the Inuit of Southampton Island, focusing mostly on the annual walrus hunt. Black and white. (1944)
