Tales of hunt­ing one of the most feared and respect­ed ani­mals in the Arctic: the polar bear, or nanuq. An Igloo­lik elder, Abra­ham Ulayu­ru­luk, recounts sto­ries about hunt­ing polar bears in the old days. A young boy, the 11-year old son of Zacharias Kunuk, is taught by his grand­fa­ther to cap­ture his first bear.
