Seal Hunt

Innu hunters were also well acquainted with marine animals, since they spent all their summers by the sea. Abraham Bellefleur, from Ekuanitshit, demonstrates his knowledge of catching seals.

Introduction

2:04 min. - Before returning to the bush in August, we hunted seal for its fat and hide.

Transcription

Narrator - Seal's call
Women - No, we don't need a man... You're lucky you can still sit like that. I'm not just good at filing, I also know how to take care of men. I think we're going to need a man... after all.
Music - Philippe Mckenzie
