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.

Samson tells a story of long ago. Inuit had killed the store manager at Little Whale River and stole the supplies there. Natives from the south, probably from Moose Factory used to come up the coast to kill Inuit because of what happened in Little Whale River. They also killed the Cree from that area also. A group of Cree camped at the south side of Whapmagoostui. Two boats of raiders came from the south with black flags. This meant there were coming to fight. As the raiders beached their boats, two elders ran down to meet them. Before the raiders could fight, the elders kicked them back. The fight was stopped. As the raiders camped on the other side of the river, they sent a flying killing amulet to the other side. An elder got hit by it but was able to survive. The Cree returned the same flying killing amulet and killed the leader of the raiders. The raiders fled.
