The legend of two cannibals, father and son, the son named Niishuskiniu. Niishuskiniu goes hunting and finds a couple who were starving and brings them home. The couple were fed, only to be fattened up. The woman refers to the cannibal elder as `father`. The cannibal elder begins feeling sorry for the couple and plans to help them escape. Niishuskiniu is eager to kill the couple to eat them but his father tells him to find a new place to camp. Niishuskiniu leaves and the couple goes into hiding. The cannibal elder helps them by bringing a strong blizzard. Niishuskiniu finds another camp and kills the woman who was alone at the camp and takes his kill back to his camp. The husband returns to camp and notices that his wife had been killed by Niishuskiniu. The husband leaves and puts a curse on his path. Niishuskiniu follows the husband but the cursed path hinders him. While hunting during the spring, Niishuskiniu finds canoes hung on a rack. The two cannibals move closer to the canoes to wait for the people to journey back to their canoes. The group of people come back to their canoes and build a camp. At night, the cannibals attack the people and kill them. Finally, a man is determined to kill the two cannibals. He and his family move to an area where the cannibals are. The cannibals reach their camp and are invited to stay. After getting to know the cannibals, the man knows how to kill the cannibals and is able to succeed.

Waaniyuuyaau goes after Kuikuhaachaau and his family. Waaniyuuyaau transforms into a giant skunk to kill his victims. Kuikuhaachaau transforms into the wolverine and attacks Waaniyuuyaau. Kuikuhaachaau and his family kill Waaniyuuyaau but Kuikuhaachaau gets some of awful stench on his face. His head is wrapped and he goes towards the sea to wash himself. After washing himself in the sea, Kuikuhaachaau finds some family members living with Minituu. Minituu is very selfish and doesn`t share. Minituu and Kuikuhaachaau don`t get along and Minituu tries to kill Kuikuhaachaau unsuccessfully. The legend is abruptly cut due to the length of the tape.

Samson tells the story of the starvation of the Washipabano family. Thomas Washipabano and his wife had 6 sons, three of them married. They had around 10 grandchildren. The entire family had died from starvation out in the bush. When they didn`t return to Fort George for the summer, the people knew that they had starved to death that winter. The camp with the bodies was discovered. Samson mentions several other incidents of people starving to death, and about hunters not returning from the hunt due to starvation. He also mentions that he had experienced hunger himself and his body becoming gaunt.

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.

Samson recalls a time when a child starved to death. That year, they knew they would have a very hard time because food was scarce. There were many of them at one camp. After killing a porcupine, a few ptarmigan and some fish, they were able to travel. The camp split up. They tracked some caribou and killed 3 caribou. Samson went to tell the other camp to come. As he follows their trail, he notices that they`re having a hard time. A hunter had collapsed from hunger and was dragged home on the toboggan. When he reached the camp, a child had died. After moving away, Samson kills 3 caribou and they did better. While hunting, they see tracks of people from Nitchequon. As they follow the tracks, they see a boy who was mute checking fish hooks on the ice. The boy points to the camp. Samson and his brother visit the camp for a few days. When they leave the camp, a few hunters accompany them to visit their camp.
