directed by Vic Pelletier; produced by Nicole Godin, fl. 1997 and Vic Pelletier, in Kitikmeot, Episode 1 (Montréal, QC: CinéFête, 2010), 52 mins
With the DRUM DANCER, we discover a universal language through music, an intermediary from which bonds are beautifully woven and transcended through time. A rhythm which scans the existence of man and proclaims life. Throughout time and most certainly due to its simple fabrication and workmanship, the drum has bee...

directed by Quentin Brown, fl. 1967; produced by Quentin Brown, fl. 1967, in Netsilik Eskimo (Watertown, MA: Documentary Educational Resources (DER), 1967), 27 mins
The men are hunting seal through the sea-ice in the bleak windy weather. The wind disturbs the "tell-tales," made of eider down or a hair loop on a bone, that signal when a seal rises to breathe. A hunter strikes, kills and drags his catch up and away. At the igloo the woman scrapes at a polar bear skin and a man...

A bitter wind blows and the dogs huddle in the snow. In the igloo, the children scratch in the rime on the ice window. A man takes out his tool-pouch and drills the stone trough he is making, using bow and spindle. Children play with a pup; a man coils his whip and warms his hands at the lamp. A naked infant toddl...

directed by Quentin Brown, fl. 1967; produced by Quentin Brown, fl. 1967, in Netsilik Eskimo (Watertown, MA: Documentary Educational Resources (DER), 1967), 33 mins
As the kayak takes shape there are more ribs to be split and shaped to fit, more soaking, bending and binding, more skins to soak and scrape and soak again before stretching them tightly on the frame and sewing them in place. Now the outer rim is put in position and, while the ice floats in the bay, the men launch...

Late June, and much of the land is bare. There are sounds of running water, and melt ponds shine everywhere. The woman carries heather and moss to camp and the man makes a whirling bullroarer for the boy. Another child pretends to drive a dog sled. A woman is working sinews into bowstrings, while another is busy w...

The men are out on the sea ice and the women work at the tasks of camp. Seal skins are pegged to dry in the sun and a woman, baby on her back, picks over a pile of gulls. The birds are skinned and then go into the pot with water from a melt pond. A baby sucks on a bone. The people eat, and then the women visit an...

In 1883, a young German scientist - Franz Boas - arrived in the Canadian Arctic to map the coastline and indulge in his new interest the study...

An usurpassed view, a landscape a stone and rock, stretching far beyond the eye's reach. The Inuit live amongst the great rocks and have learned to craft this marvel with the utmost respect. In THE JOURNEY OF THE STONE, we discover the history of a sculpture, embodying a true indian legend.
