In the past, children were introduced to the hunt at an early age. They fished with their mothers on the ice. The men set nets and fish hooks under the ice and the women checked them. Even if the men didn`t get anything from the hunt, sometimes the women and children caught fish to eat. When they traveled, the men simply left the camp in the early morning. The women broke camp and followed the trail of their husbands. The teepee was made with a large rock as the hearth. The men left their toboggans where they wanted the camp to be set up and left to hunt caribou. When they returned from hunting, the women and the elders were already setting up the new camp. If many caribou were killed, a feast was held and the elders sang with their drums. Samson mentioned that they camped at many different places during one winter because they were nomadic. If the hunt was successful, there was great joy at the camp.

Samson recalls the year he first got married. Samson, his wife his father and a young man and a girl traveled together. They traveled inland by canoe. As they sailed, he killed 3 bears. They reached his brother-in-law at Patukami Lake. That was the last year his brother-in-law was alive. They caught many fish during the spawning time. Caribou was becoming scarce. That winter, food became scarce. Samson and his brother-in-law had a chance to kill caribou but the caribou ran away. His brother-in-law seemed to know that he would die soon. One time during a blizzard, his brother-in-law left to go hunting, he fell into the river during the winter. His body could not be found.

This is the legend of Kuikuhaachaau and Waaniyuuyaau. Kuikuhaachaau warns his siblings that Waaniyuuyaau was near and not to cross his path. But Sikusaapaau accidentally touches Waaniyuuyaau`s path. Waaniyuuyaau goes after Kuikuhaachaau and his family. Waaniyuuyaau transforms into a giant skunk to kill his victims. Kuikuhaachaau transforms into the wolverine and attacks Waaniyuuyaau. Kuikuhaachaau and his family kill Waaniyuuyaau but Kuikuhaachaau gets some of awful stench on his face. His head is wrapped and he goes towards the sea to wash himself. After washing himself in the sea, Kuikuhaachaau finds some family members living with Minituu. Minituu is very selfish and doesn`t share. Minituu and Kuikuhaachaau don`t get along and Minituu tries to kill Kuikuhaachaau unsuccessfully. The legend is abruptly cut due to the length of the tape.

Samson tells the story of the starvation of the Washipabano family. Thomas Washipabano and his wife had 6 sons, three of them married. They had around 10 grandchildren. The entire family had died from starvation out in the bush. When they didn`t return to Fort George for the summer, the people knew that they had starved to death that winter. The camp with the bodies was discovered. Samson mentions several other incidents of people starving to death, and about hunters not returning from the hunt due to starvation. He also mentions that he had experienced hunger himself and his body becoming gaunt.

Samson recalls a time when a child starved to death. That year, they knew they would have a very hard time because food was scarce. There were many of them at one camp. After killing a porcupine, a few ptarmigan and some fish, they were able to travel. The camp split up. They tracked some caribou and killed 3 caribou. Samson went to tell the other camp to come. As he follows their trail, he notices that they`re having a hard time. A hunter had collapsed from hunger and was dragged home on the toboggan. When he reached the camp, a child had died. After moving away, Samson kills 3 caribou and they did better. While hunting, they see tracks of people from Nitchequon. As they follow the tracks, they see a boy who was mute checking fish hooks on the ice. The boy points to the camp. Samson and his brother visit the camp for a few days. When they leave the camp, a few hunters accompany them to visit their camp.
