At the Caribou Crossing Place: Part 2

In this short documentary on the Netsilik Inuit, 2 men join the 4 people at camp. The men build a row of inukshuit, manlike figures which they use to deflect the oncoming caribou into the water, where they are subsequently speared and floated ashore. A great feast follows.

    “Are the two men brothers or father and older son or just friends? I see they stay together all the time. If they are brothers/friends, do they share the wife or is just one with her? I like these films showing the way of hunting and fishing, gathering the abundant resources around them. I think their way of life must have been so rewarding compared to our settled and so called civilized lives. I wish I was not so attached to my modern life that I could not live the way they do. I see they have steel tools like knives,Ulu and such. I read To the Top of the World in the late 1970's when I spent two years living in Alaska and have always admired this primitive way of life. ” — cgptsnaz, 26 Jan 2015
