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.

A man was very cruel. His son-in-law is determined to get back at him. The father-in-law and son-in-law watch a game of ball. As the game goes on, the father-in-law`s team does not score. He gets angry and tries to hurt the young man`s brothers. But the young man protects his brothers with his power. As the camp separates to hunt in different areas for the winter, the father-in-law tries to put a curse on the young man but the young man returns it. As the winter progresses, the bad father-in-law`s camp becomes hungry and starts cannibalizing on the other camp members. In the spring, the young man and his brothers hear the cannibal coming for them. As the young men paddle, the cannibal swims after them but they kill him in the water by spearing him.

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.
