One time as he hunted, he became very frustrated. As he sat there, the animals began to notice him. All the animals approached him and explained that they didn`t know he existed. The animals tell the young man that he would be able to kill game now. After that, he became a successful hunter and all the women were attracted to him.

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.

The legend of two cannibals, father and son, the son named Niishuskiniu. Niishuskiniu goes hunting and finds a couple who were starving and brings them home. The couple were fed, only to be fattened up. The woman refers to the cannibal elder as `father`. The cannibal elder begins feeling sorry for the couple and plans to help them escape. Niishuskiniu is eager to kill the couple to eat them but his father tells him to find a new place to camp. Niishuskiniu leaves and the couple goes into hiding. The cannibal elder helps them by bringing a strong blizzard. Niishuskiniu finds another camp and kills the woman who was alone at the camp and takes his kill back to his camp. The husband returns to camp and notices that his wife had been killed by Niishuskiniu. The husband leaves and puts a curse on his path. Niishuskiniu follows the husband but the cursed path hinders him. While hunting during the spring, Niishuskiniu finds canoes hung on a rack. The two cannibals move closer to the canoes to wait for the people to journey back to their canoes. The group of people come back to their canoes and build a camp. At night, the cannibals attack the people and kill them. Finally, a man is determined to kill the two cannibals. He and his family move to an area where the cannibals are. The cannibals reach their camp and are invited to stay. After getting to know the cannibals, the man knows how to kill the cannibals and is able to succeed.
