In the past, children were introduced to the hunt at an early age. They fished with their mothers on the ice. The men set nets and fish hooks under the ice and the women checked them. Even if the men didn`t get anything from the hunt, sometimes the women and children caught fish to eat. When they traveled, the men simply left the camp in the early morning. The women broke camp and followed the trail of their husbands. The teepee was made with a large rock as the hearth. The men left their toboggans where they wanted the camp to be set up and left to hunt caribou. When they returned from hunting, the women and the elders were already setting up the new camp. If many caribou were killed, a feast was held and the elders sang with their drums. Samson mentioned that they camped at many different places during one winter because they were nomadic. If the hunt was successful, there was great joy at the camp.

Samson recalls the year he first got married. Samson, his wife his father and a young man and a girl traveled together. They traveled inland by canoe. As they sailed, he killed 3 bears. They reached his brother-in-law at Patukami Lake. That was the last year his brother-in-law was alive. They caught many fish during the spawning time. Caribou was becoming scarce. That winter, food became scarce. Samson and his brother-in-law had a chance to kill caribou but the caribou ran away. His brother-in-law seemed to know that he would die soon. One time during a blizzard, his brother-in-law left to go hunting, he fell into the river during the winter. His body could not be found.

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.

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.

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.
