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.

In the old days people didn`t get married, they just lived together because we didn`t have ministers. Inuits used to kill the Crees. But there was one Inuit who didn`t like to kill so he told the Crees that they were thinking of killing them. He asked the Crees for tobacco.
