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.
