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.
