Johnny recounts a story his father experienced long ago. When his father was young, his family on the verge of starvation. A group of hunters after a successful hunt found their camp. The men gave them caribou meat. If the hunters had not passed by in the area, Johnny`s father`s family would have starved to death. The surprising thing is the hunters killed caribou when they had no ammunition.

A man and wife are hungry. Even when he performs the shaking tent, his helping spirit doesn`t come to help him. One day as he walks, he finds a path of people traveling. He follows the trail and finds the camp. He reaches the camp as a feast is being held. He announces that he had arrived and is very hungry. Everyone at the camp ignores him. He enters the lodge and a group of men are feasting but still ignore him. He sat down with the men and proceeded to eat. Apparently, these are helping spirits and is successful in his hunting there after.
