Episode 9: Aiviaq (Walrus Hunt)
1995, 28:50 minutes, colour, Inuktitut w English or French subtitles
The distant sound of the 'tookatook' - the first gas engine to arrive in Igloolik - brings a surprise visitor to Qaisut, island of the walrus hunters. The Priest arrives to study Inuit life, to dig in the ancient ruins and to see the hunt. When it's time to go hunting, Inuaraq thinks the Priest will bring bad luck but Qlitalik finally gives in. Out in the open water, cutting up walrus on an ice floe, Inuaraq's prediction almost comes true.
