Second Isuma recreated fiction, 1991. Summer in the 1930's. For Igloolik Inuit, it is the time of Nunaqpa, 'going inland,' the long walk in search of summer-fat caribou to catch enough meat for the hard winter ahead. Two families leave for the hunt, while the old couple waits by the shore for their return...

Nunaqpa is a part of the Unikaatuatiit (Story Tellers) Series.

    SYNOPSIS:

    Abandoned by her father, a White RCMP officer, Vivi Kunuk was adopted by the Inuk family of her mother who raised her as a boy. This is but one remarkable chapter in her life.

    With her husband Enuki, she raised eight children, including award-winning filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk, living most of the year on the land as her nomadic ancestors did prior to the creation of government settlements in the 1950's. Surrounded by her grandchildren, she recounts stories about the land she knows intimately and her life's destiny on Baffin Island.

    The history of changes experienced by Inuit people in the last sixty years is contained in the stories of Vivi Kunuk.
