Segment 1: In 1985, Elders in Cambridge Bay show some traditional games. They play with an ajagaq. It involves a bone with a stick at the end - you try to pin the stick into the hole to win or to tell a story to continue. They sing ajaaja songs and they also show how the pulling game works - two women position themselves and try to pull each other over.
