- 1971 ----- color ----- 58 min ----- 16mm
Until the mid-1960s, Zachary Itimignac and his family lived the nomadic life of the Inuit hunter in the Pelly Bay region of the Arctic. Then the Canadian government introduced measures to provide heated dwellings, a school, a hospital, medical care, a co-operative, air transportation, etc. Presents a day-long study of the impact of the changed way of life on this one family. Footage from People of the Seal: Eskimo Summer and People of the Seal: Eskimo Winter shows the old ways before the coming of the white man and his governmental changes.
