Inuit Piqqusingit is part documentary, part how-to, part real-life adventure. Each episode draws on the knowledge and experience of elders as they lead trips on the land, retell stories and give demonstrations to young people. The Arctic landscape makes a dramatic backdrop for each program, whether it's a summer seal hunt by boat, dog teaming on the sea ice, or a young man's first polar bear hunt or a hill-top demonstration of traditional medicines. In Inuktitut with English sub-titles.
