This series centres on the reminiscences of Tuktu, a fictional elder, recalling the traditional Inuit ways of his childhood. The Tuktu series was compiled from footage of the Netsilik people of Pelly Bay. Volume 2 contains: Tuktu and the Snow Palace (14 min. 13 sec.) As Tuktu recounts an Inuit legend, we observe daily life at a winter hunting camp, including construction of a giant igloo to be used for feasting, dancing and games. (1967); Tuktu and the Trials of Strength (14 min. 18 sec.) In the giant igloo, men and women play competitive games: the men test their strength, while the women test the speed and skill of their hands. (1967); Tuktu and the Indoor Games (14 min. 18 sec.) It's a time of plenty, and games are in order. The giant igloo is filled with the sounds of juggling, laughter and a spinning ice top. (1967)
