In this short documentary on the Netsilik Inuit, it is late autumn. The Inuit move to the river valley where they build karmaks--shelters with snow walls and roofs of skins. The men fish with spears and their catch is cooked over an exterior fire. The family then eats inside the karmaks.

    Admittedly, I have not watched the whole series, nor even this one film, but thus far it seems that there is no actual discussion of their cosmologies, their meaning making beliefs, etc. Rather, we are given only a representation of their mode of life, not their meaning of life. Does this change further along, for anyone who has seen the series or this part? Otherwise, this just seems like your standard civilizing moral story telling viz. look how hard their life was before we brought them out of their nomadic life. Is that how they perceived their lives? I'm not sure, but I would be shocked.

    So I guess these people have moved into the modern world for the most part? Thier way of life though harsh looks much better than having to work to make money to buy the things we in the rest of the world deem needed. My Grandmother was Mohawk and I have always had a affection for the early Indian ways of life.
