"A look at the Copper Eskimos of the Coronation Gulf. The location is fixed by use of a map, and the film covers a change of seasons. Sequences include: Inuit children harnessing dogs and sledding on sea ice; October ice fishing by nets; building kamatik sled with drill and biti; and Inuit children skipping rope. Ikpuck, an elderly man, builds an igloo and his wife, Haiokok, chinks it. Footage shows an Inuit drum dance where Ikpuck sings and dances; a winter camp and preparations for a caribou hunting trip; Ikpuck wearing slitted snow goggles; Inuit in traditional long parkas, an angijutauiuq parka, a quilittaq outer parka, and an atigi; the summer ice break-up and salmon fishing; and an old woman sharpening her uluk knife, cutting the men's catch, and eating some of it raw."
