George tells a story of his life in the past. His family experienced hunger. They had cached food for the winter but crows and foxes ate everything from the cache. His family camped with people from Whapmagoostui at Apishikimiish (Lac Bienville). As they move further east towards Mistisiipii (George River), they meet up with Montagnais people from Waashaau (Sept Isles?). The Montagnais family was starving. George mentioned that it was hard to communicate with them. George helped the Montagnais by giving them some fish to use as bait for their fish hooks.

This is one story of Kuikuhaachaau. Wolves reach Kuikuhaachaau. The leader of the wolves is named Chiihchiikwaayush. They begin living together. Kuikuhaachaau seems to be very pitiful compared to the wolves. The wolves seem to use shaman power in their hunt but Kuikuhaachaau is very unsuccessful. The wolves give him some of their power but Kuikuhaachaau uses it indiscriminantly. Another time when Kuikuhaachaau collects rock tripe, an arrow passes by him. The other person tries to help using special power but Kuikuhaachaau fails to follow the orders and the help fails. Then, Kuikuhaachaau reaches the man Kaa Umaanikinishiu. Kuikaahaachaau asks him for his caribou corral. Kaa Umaanikinishiu instructs Kuikuhaachaau how to use it but he fails to follow the instructions and isn`t able to kill any caribou.

George tells a story of another winter where they were inland. As they moved inland, they met a Whapmagoostui man coming from the other direction. The man was already very thin from starvation. They lived together at Apishikimiish (Lac Bienville). At that camp, there were over 100 people. They didn`t have much success finding caribou. As George`s family moves away, they kill some caribou.

Only after Pikuch Iiyiyiu kills the game, that`s when the brother sees the game. One time when the brothers go hunting, they kill many caribou and stay the night away from camp. That`s when Pikuch Iiyiyiu fears an attack from strangers. Pikuch Iiyiyiu also performs the shaking tent. George also explains the legend in detail at the end.

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.
