Film Description:
"Scenes of the life and hunting activities of the Inuit of the eastern Arctic. These people, in their endless struggle for existence, must kill many walruses and seals in the summer to provide their food, clothing and equipment for the long winter months. We see Inuit seal-hunting from their kayaks, walrus-hunting from a small motor boat, and celebrating the good catch with dance and song."
