This story is about a young man who was bullied by his fellow men on the work site. These men went to the governor and told him lies of what Nikiishaan was saying. They said that Nikiishaan said that he could find the governor`s daughters, whom he had lost a long time ago. Then one day the governor asked Nikiishaan to come to his place. He said, "is it true what you said? that you can find my daughters?" Nikiishaan said "no".

"Well I think that`s what you said, so you will go and find my daughters. If you find them, I will give you everything that you need and I will also give you permission to marry one of them." So then Nikiishaan left the village.

George talks about a time of starvation when he was a teenager. It was around Christmas time and they had no food. They reached another camp where the people were hungry also. The wolves were driving the caribou away. They finally were able to get caribou. They went to the other camp to give them food. Many people had starved to death that winter.

George talks about the preparation for the winter. They caught fish first before trapping to make sure they had food. The men set the nets under the ice and the women checked them. The men trapped far from camp. The men also hunted big game. If they camped at a good fishing lake, they did well. If there were no caribou, they lived on fish. In the spring, geese and ducks were hunted. In the summer, they paddled to Fort George. If they had killed big game, a feast was held. Josie Sam Sr. asks a few questions about the singing at feasts and types of lodges made in the past.

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.
