5 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in Inuktitut and English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For untold centuries Inuit hunted the huge bowhead, or 'right' whale, as a main source of food, heating oil and building materials. Starting in the 1700's until the close of the 19th century, commercial whalers from Europe and America wiped out almost the entire world's population of bowhead whales. In the mid-20th century, the Canadian government made the eastern Arctic bowhead hunt illegal. In 1994 one of Canada's most respected Inuit elders, 95 year old Noah Piugatuk, announced that he wanted to taste the bowhead whale one more time before he died. Honouring the elder's wish, Piugatuk's son-in-law caught an illegal whale near Igloolik. A few months later, the whale hunters were charged and ordered to stand trial. In June 1996, the government finally dropped all charges against the Igloolik hunters. In August 1996, Inuit hunters from across the arctic gathered in Repulse Bay to catch the first legal bowhead in more than forty years. Arviq! traces the history of the bowhead in the Arctic up to the first legal hunt in 1996

Ein Nomadenstamm, der seit Jahrhunderten am nördlichen Polarkreis in der kanadischen Arktis lebt, wird durch einen fremden Schamanen mit einem Fluch belegt. Rivalität, Hass und Machtgier zerstören das friedliche Zusammenleben der Inuit: Der alte Stammeshäuptling wird das erste Opfer des aufkeimenden Hasses. Dem hinterhältigen Sauri gelingt es, sich gegen seinen alten Rivalen Tulimaq zu behaupten und neuer Führer der Gemeinschaft zu werden. Auch Amaqjuaq und Atanarjuat, die wegen ihrer Geschicklichkeit im ganzen Stamm beliebten Söhne Tulimaqs, bekommen den Hass Sauris zu spüren. Jahre später sind Amaqjuaq, der Starke, und Atanarjuat, der schnelle Läufer, die besten Jäger ihres Stammes. Als Atanarjuat das Herz der schönen Atuat gewinnt, die dem prahlerischen Oki, Sauris Sohn, versprochen war, spitzt sich die Situation zu. Nachdem Atanarjuat in einem rituellen Kampf Oki besiegt und Atuat heiraten darf, schleichen sich Oki und zwei seiner Männer in das Zelt der schlafenden Brüder und versuchen, beide hinterrücks zu ermorden. Atanarjuat gelingt jedoch die Flucht über das ewige Eis. Völlig erschöpft und dem Tod durch Erfrieren nah findet er Unterschlupf bei einem alten Inuitpaar, das sich vor Jahren vom Stamm abgewendet hat und ein einsames Leben in der arktischen Tundra führt. Die beiden Alten verstecken ihn und pflegen ihn gesund. Doch irgendwann ist für Atanarjuat die Zeit gekommen, sich dem Fluch zu stellen und den ewigen Kreislauf von Rache und Hass endgültig zu brechen
