In Celebration of Nunavut - Life on the Land - Volume 4 - The Eskimo: Fight for Life

Haut de la page

Seven videos that depict traditional Inuit ways on the land. Volume 4 contains: The Eskimo: Fight for Life. A valuable record of the last winter spent on the ice by the Netsilik people of the Pelly Bay Area. Soon after this 1970 video was shot, they left their migratory ways behind and moved into wooden homes. Sparsely narrated by an anthropologist who spent the winter with the Netsilik, The Eskimo: Fight for Life shows the meticulous preparations for hunting seal, the feasting that follows and the important role of women, who remain behind in the igloos: caring for children as well as making and repairing clothing. (1970)
