Segment 1: Kiviuq’s Journey – Kiviuq is a legendary figure across the North. His stories are told in many ways, in many dialects. The stories of Kiviuq hold Inuit tradition together. From Alaska to Greenland, elders tell stories about Kiviuq and his journey home from exile.
Segment 2: This is a documentary about Inuit and how religion came to be established in Inuit communities. Most of the documentary is about residential school abuse to children. Sister Pelagie became the first nun and she talks about residential school and her experience as a nun.
